Description

New Sounds is unlike any radio show you've ever heard: a whirlwind tour of new and unusual music from all corners of the globe. New Sounds combs recent recordings for one of the most informative and compelling hours on radio, and aims to make the world smaller. For over 25 years, host John Schaefer has been finding the melody in the rainforest and the rhythm in an orchestra of tin cans. Defying rigid categorization and genre pigeonholing, New Sounds offers new ways to hear the ancient language of song. With guest musicians from David Byrne to Meredith Monk to Ravi Shankar to Philip Glass to Christopher O'Riley to Bang On A Can, Schaefer presents performances (both in-studio and from the New Sounds Live concert series) and premieres new works from the classic and operatic to folk and jazz, and anything else in between. Each show has a theme, ranging from post-rock to klezmer to African blues to minimalism. The variety of cultures and styles explored is boundless. Music you may not have known existed and now can't live without.

Customer Reviews

Give me more, give me more!

This is easily the best show in WNYC's line-up and is the source for half of the best loved pieces in my collection. From Sade to Gorecki to Steve Reich to gamelan and Gavin Bryars, I heard it here first. Thank you John Schaffer, thank you WNYC, thank you iTunes, but give me more, give me more! I want every night's show!

Simply play this podcast. It has new, catchy music that sets a pace and a rhythm for your day. It is simply music to my ears.

Excellent!

Music lovers take note. This is simply one of the best podcasts around. I'm not sure where else I would have the chance to hear a lot of the great music John shares. Highly recommended.
