World Music Singing Tour

Saturday, April 13, 2013

A Bulgarian, a Greek and a Turk walk into a bar…  Not the opening of a joke, rather it’s the vocal group Trio Tzane, who make music together under the motto “Balkan polyphonies and other vocal stories.”  We’ll hear from them, along with a few selections from Huun Huur Tu, the throat singers of Tuva.  Also, listen to some Norwegian sami singing, or joiking, from Jienat, with a whole lot of Brazilian, and West African percussion that renders the music utterly danceable.
