Not Dead Yet

Sunday, November 21, 2010

Hear world music vocals in ancient (and in some cases dead) languages featured in songs that blur the distinction between past and future.  Listen for high-tech sounds married to ancient texts, like the Epiphany Project.  There's also Sufi-influenced Arabic folk music from Dozan, a choir founded by Jordanian vocalist Shireen Abu-Kader and the Dozan wa Awtar Establishment.  Plus, music from émigré Persian group Niyaz, Australian band Dead Can Dance, and more.
