Lute Around the World

Saturday, July 28, 2012

On this New Sounds program, explore music from the lute family, embracing trance traditions, minimalism, and hearkening back to the Renaissance.  Listen to works for  instruments from Japan (the kugo), from Afghanistan (rebab), and from Mali (kora).   We’ll also hear music for sintir or gimbri (from Morocco), along with the oud, and the Persian tambour.  Plus, a live performance by Dutch lute player Jozef van Wissem on his swan-neck lute.

All Over the World Music

Sunday, November 06, 2011

For this New Sounds, hear some world music that doesn't come from one specific part of the world, including Les Triaboliques, featuring guitarist Justin Adams and 3 Mustaphas 3 founder Ben Mandelson.  Plus, session-guitarist extraordinaire Smokey Hormel steps into the spotlight with a collection of Central African dance hits of the 1950s and 60s.  There's also a tune from Berlin's 17 Hippies, an almost untraceable blend of music from the gypsy, or Roma tradition, fused with circus chamber punk, mariachi music, and American country music.  And, not to be outdone, New York's own Blarvuster is composer Matthew Welch on Celtic bagpipes, drawing from his studies of Gamelan, up against some Afrobeat-y drumming.
