This New Sounds is the companion program to last night's show, where we'll not be limited to English-language poets.  Look forward to texts by Rumi (Persian poet and mystic), set by Philip Glass.  Also, listen for poetry by Pablo Neruda in a setting by Osvaldo Golijov.  Plus, music by 17th century Alevi-Bektashi poets, as rendered by the band Niyaz and their vocalist Azam Ali, and more music with poetry by Pablo Neruda, and perhaps text by Rainer Maria Rilke, and more.
