Near Eastern Music

Sunday, July 29, 2012

This New Sounds program presents music from the Near East, including works from Lebanon, Syria, Iran, and Israel. Bassist Jim Guttmann, (anchor man in the Klezmer Conservatory Band,) leads his own ensemble which branches out intriguingly into jazz, funk, and world music. From Guttmann’s brand new recording “Bessarabian Breakdown,” we’ll hear a traditional Sephardic melody “Cuando el Rey Nimrod.”

Theme & Variations: Lamma Bada

Thursday, August 12, 2010

The best-known Arabic classical music is likely an ancient Moorish song called "Lamma Bada Yata Thanna," a fascinating piece of music set in the samai rhythm, which is written in 10/8. Its origins can be traced back to the tenth century, and it continues to be a familiar in the Arabic world today. As part of one of New Sounds' Theme & Variations shows, we hear versions by Juan Martin & Alhambra, Radio Tarifa, Hamza El Din, and others.
