For this New Sounds, listen to songs that combine east and west – specifically music that incorporates sounds of Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. Hear from the young electronic duo, Ya Tosiba who mix Azerbaijani poetry with electronic beats, along with North Indian sarangi, upright bass and bluesy acoustic guitar from the Scottish-English Indian collaborative “supergroup” Yorkston Thome Khan. Plus, hear music from Bahraini-British trumpet and flugelhorn-player, Yazz Ahmed (pictured below), who is one of a number of artists stretching jazz into the current century. And more.
