Listen to ensemble pieces which incorporate or draw from the folk music of several different parts of the world on this New Sounds program. There’s music by the Alaev Family band from Tajikistan collaborating with Israeli musician Tamir Muskat from the band Balkan Beat Box. Also, hear music that simulates the sound of Norwegian folk fiddling. It’s the work of Princeton University professor Dan Trueman, founder of the Princeton Laptop Orchestra and a Norwegian hardanger fiddle specialist together with So Percussion.
