From Sumatra to Jerusalem

The 205th edition of RootsWorld Radio will feature new American vocal music rooted in Indonesian classical traditions, composed by Baird Hersey and performed by the combined vocal and instrumental groups Prana and Nexus. We’ll also feature some traditional and popular music for voices, gongs and chimes from Sunda and Sumatra. We’ll feature a collaboration by Norwegian producer and Palestinian music advocate Erik Hillestad, the ensemble of the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music in Ramallah, and the Gaza Youth Choir. Other performances will include the ensemble Sabreen from East Jerusalem, and a piece by Lebanese jazz musician Rabih Abou Khalil and his band with Sonny Fortune, Glen Moore, Ramesh Shotam and Nabil Khiat. And we’ll round it out with new music from Denmark by the quintet Mallebrok.
