FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH MAGICAL STRINGS Magical Strings is the longtime, Washington state-based duo
who've been bringing Celtic music across the country for 25 years.
Philip Boulding is a virtuoso of the Celtic harp and his wife
Pam is a denizen of the hammered dulcimer. Together they weave
an enchanting sound, mixing original music with traditional Celtic
themes. Their latest album is WHERE DRAGONS DANCE (Alula Records).
Magical Strings brings their musical incantations into the Echoes
Living Room where they play live.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH JAI UTTAL AND BEN LEINBACH Jai Uttal is a pioneer of world fusion whose last appearance
on Echoes was in 1991. Jai is a scholar of Indian music, especially
the stringed instrument called the dotar and the singing style
called Kirtan. His latest album is MUSIC FOR YOGA AND OTHER JOYS
(Sounds True Records). He teams up with multi-instrumentalist
Ben Leinbach, and Nepalese bansuri flute player, Manose, in a
series of serene improvisations, meditations and chants, recorded
live in Jai's Marin County, California living room.
LORI CARSON: SONGS THAT WHISPER Lori Carson has released several albums in what might be called
the conventional singer-songwriter mode, but on her new CD, THE
FINEST THING (Meta Records) she heads into ambient terrain with
songs that whisper and instrumentals that recall Brian Eno-style
ambiences. Carson travels down from her Long Island home to talk
about her introspective music, recorded right in her home.
SUZANNE TENG: TRAVELING MILES Suzanne Teng is a virtuoso flutist whose music has expanded
beyond the silver flute to embrace more than 50 styles of flutes
from across the world. She weaves these instruments into a sensuous
global landscape with her husband, percussionist Gilbert Levy,
and a host of fellow global travelers. Her album, MILES BEYOND
was the Echoes CD of the Month for January of this year. In their
Topanga Canyon home, Suzanne Teng and Gilbert Levy talk about
their musical journey and recording their album at home with their
son Miles sitting in a high chair in their studio.
