It's the end of the month, which brings another bunch of new releases to New Sounds. Listen for new music from Moroccan-born Brooklyn-based musician, player of the sintir (bass lute), and "Godfather of Gnawa" Hassan Hakmoun, from his forthcoming record, “Unity.” Then, from Mali, hear mostly acoustic music from Habib Koite, followed by traditional music from Bulgaria, arranged and played by mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital, from Israel.

This is another part in the series, "NightMusic" an hour of works that evoke the darkness, the stillness, the mystery and the uncertainty of night. We'll hear "Dark Was The Night" a song without words from Phil Kline's apocalyptic mass, "John the Revelator," featuring the vocal group Lionheart and the quartet Ethel. Plus, music by John Adams, his powerful and terrifying "Night Chorus" from the opera "The Death of Klinghoffer," and other works.
