Bookmark and Share

Global Village welcomes in the first full day of the new season with songs of summer. On Tuesday, June 21, as part of the June Silk Road feature, Global Village pays a visit this time to Central Asia – the crossroads for all the paths along the Silk Road. We'll hear music from the Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble inspired by Turkmenistan, Uzbek star Yulduz Usmanova, traditional music from Kyrgyzstan's Damira Njazbekova, and some heavy metal folk from Kazakhstan's Ulytau. Plus new music from Western Sahara's Aziza Brahim, Finland's Sampo Lassila Narinkka, and the U.S. Virgin Islands' Stanley & the Ten Sleepless Knights.

On Thursday, June 23, Global Village highlights more world-jazz artists and recordings including Rabih Abou-Khalil - whose music offers a unique blend of Middle Eastern music and jazz and who has worked with the Silk Road Ensemble.
