meet the past

June 21, 2009

2009-Jun15-MamaneBarka

A new recording from World Music Network introduces us to Niger’s Mamane Barka and the biram, an ancient holy 5-string harp long played by the nomad cultures living along Lake Chad. Mamane is the last biram master in the world, as younger generations of desert people have moved on and are no longer learning how to play it.

This week on World of Music we’ll hear Mamane Barka’s debut recording, along with new music from Turkey, Italy (featuring Paolo Conte’s brother, Giorgio!), and Finland. Lenny Bruce will stop with some thoughts on poetry and jazz, and we’ll swing it with music from the Triplets of Belleville film soundtrack. Listen to “World of Music” online (Mondays, 3-5pm EDT) or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
