Three disparate folk traditions combine in this exclusive Late Junction collaboration session, recorded in the music rooms of Craxton Studios, a turn-of-the-century house in north-west London. Duo Anna & Elizabeth play banjo, fiddle and guitar and draw their inspiration from the mountain music of Appalachia, while vocalist and saz virtuoso Asiq Nargile is from the Asiq tradition in Georgia. Bady-Dorzhu Ondar, from the Alash Ensemble, is a master of harmonic Tuvan throat singing, a technique from the southern fringes of Siberia that allows each singer to produce multiple pitches simultaneously. Over the course of a day in the oak panelled rooms of Craxton studios, the musicians worked on several pieces including a percussive tap performance by Anna Roberts-Gevalt and a harmonic Tuvan vocal piece from Bady-Dorzhu Ondar. Plus, an exclusive recording of a new piece by British pianist Kate Halsall, Adam Rudolph's Go: Organic Guitar Orchestra, featuring 11 of New York City's guitarists, and brooding improv from Austrian group Polwechsel. Presented by Max Reinhardt.
