Yo-Yo Ma’s multi-national, inter-national and amazing world music project, playing
A piece by Lebanese-born composer Rabih Abou-Khalil,
(Who is, as it happens, [in the “It’s a small world after all…” tradition] is someone that I have been listening to for a long time)
(I used to have a couple of his albums on vinyl [yes….that long of a time…])
(…and, in the manner of musical ‘kismet’, I just came across this piece today…)
(…and I’ve been planning on sharing some of Abou-Khalil’s stuff for some time now, so…I guess you know what’s coming next week…)
Live at Park Avenue Armory in New York, NY.
I cannot recommend the work of The Silk Road Ensemble highly enough.
