f you like the Be Good Tanyas, you'll enjoy the bluesy, old timey sound of Po' Girl. The group features Allison Russell on clarinet and Be Good Tanyas founding member Trish Klein on banjo. Frazey Ford, another Tanyas member, sings backup.
This Boston trio started off in the late '90s with a unique sound: two acoustic guitars and a set of bongos. Today they're more electrified, playing catchy, indie pop/rock on a relentless touring schedule.
from Hayren: Music of Komitas and Tigran Mansurian
by Kim Kashkashian/Komitas
Violist Kim Kashkashian explores the contemporary music of Armenia with this composition by Tigran Mansurian - and the roots of this music - compositions by philosopher, theologist, and ethnomusicologist Komitas.
Boris Kovac was born in 1955 in the Vojvodina region of northwest Yugoslavia. His work is strongly influenced by folk music from Hungary, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia, and by Slobodan Milosevic's Yugoslavian war in the early '90s. His music is deeply spiritual, celebrating ideals like brotherly love and peace.
