Sound: The Encounter: New Directions in Iranian and Syrian Bagpipes, Drums and Woodwinds

Hear this show now:  Pop‑up player! | Add or read comments

Sound: The Encounter takes Silk Road traditions in new directions. The genre-bashing Iranian-Syrian trio blends modern and traditional styles, featuring the rarely heard bagpipes and woodwinds of Southern Iran plus percussion and Syrian saxophone. Sound: The Encounter makes its New York debut tonight, Saturday December 7th at the Asia Society on Park Avenue (with a live video webcast too). And the adventurous trio performs at Alwan for the Arts downtown on Sunday evening. But you'll hear this exciting new collaboration first right here on WFMU.

Sound the Encounter is:
Saeid Shanbehzadeh on neyanban (Iranian bagpipe), neyjoti (flute), boogh horns, dance, vocal
Basel Rajoub on saxophones, duclar
Naghib Shanbehzadeh on percussion (tombak/zarb, darbuka)

After the session we'll also meet Rachel Cooper, Director for Global Performing Arts and Special Cultural Initiatives at the Asia Society and Fairouz Nishanova, director of the Agha Khan Music Initiative, major supporters of Sound: The Encounter among many and many other musical and cultural projects.

- Rob - you open the World, which is a bit disorienting, & thus humbling - but just so informative & enlightening - & so often richly satisfying...& simply good fun ! Appreciated.

Listening on Dec. 14 and wondering where the current playlist is. Liked the Special AKA tune. Would suggest "Llegas Mandela" by Xiomara Fortuna as another tribute on memory of Mandela.
