New Sounds

A Weave of Musical Cultures

Monday, May 27, 2013

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear a collaboration between two giants - Bill Frisell and Brazilian singer/songwriter/guitarist/percussionist Vinicius Cantuaria - which melds traditional Latin rhythms with loops and improvisational jazz.  There’s also music from global musician composer/DJ/tabla-playing/producer Karsh Kale.  Plus, hear Afro-Indian sounds from Trilok Gurtu & the Frikyiwa Family who combine south-Malian percussive styles with the rhythmic influences of Gurtu’s Indian heritage.  And much more.

New Releases, March 2013

Friday, March 29, 2013

It's the most fabulous time of the month.  John Schaefer carefully selects from all of the exciting and terrible things that have come into the New Sounds office via digital promo, CD, or the occasional throwback LP or cassette (not that easy to play around the office, sadly - please include digital download!) to present the best of the months' crop of new music releases.  From where the staff is sitting, it looks like there could be music from the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet, Vinicius Cantuaria, and Brooklyn Rider.
