Sound Tracks | Ozomatli Performs
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Ozomatli Performs
Description:  A glimpse of Ozomatli rehearsing a performance piece called At the Edge of Urban Identity. It's a kind of history of the band, a ballad of Ozomatli, narrated by their friend Josh Kun, who they call our resident smart guy, maybe because when he's not fronting Ozomatli he teaches music journalism at USC in downtown L.A. Segment presented by Sound Tracks: http://www.pbs.org/opb/soundtracks/

Sound Tracks | Piers Faccini Performs
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Piers Faccini Performs
Description:  Accompanied only by some jostling bells, Piers Faccini stands alone in a garden and delivers a kind of ancient chant, part spiritual, part stripped down work song. It promises a new morning, a new life, but in a world where all our words will soon be broken. Like a monk chanting in an old European monastery, Faccini invokes Biblical images of seven days, seven nights, seven years, seven lives.

Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform A Go Go
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform A Go Go
Description:  On stage at The Fillmore in San Francisco, Dengue Fever re-creates the atmosphere of a Phnom Penh nightclub in the '60s. There's a bouncy, innocent excitement to this song, A Go Go. A song the band obviously loves to perform. Reminds us of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' 1965 hit, Going to a Go-Go, with a wonderful Cambodian twist.

Sound Tracks | Seun Kutis Sax and Smile
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Seun Kutis Sax and Smile
Description:  We couldn't resist including this video clip of Seun Kuti, just before he took the stage at San Francisco's Regency Ballroom. It's only a moment, but it reveals another side of his personality - smiling, sleepy, a bit shy - right before he becomes a force of nature leading a volcanic band.

Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs Shotgun Blues
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs Shotgun Blues
Description:  Never, ever, cross Abigail Washburn. Consider this video your warning. She's playing a Gold Tone cello banjo for this selection, which has a sound that's deep and resonant - and in this context, a little ominous. The central riff has a nasty, bluesy edge, but sounds like it could also come straight out of a Chinese folk tune.

Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs Piao
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs Piao
Description:  With Abby, what would never work on paper has a way of coming out natural and swinging, this song being a perfect example. There's simply no one else on the planet who could pull this off. Piao means floating, and Abby sings in Mandarin, This morning I woke up to no big plans, no great ambitions, just floating, floating, floating... It's hard to explain the mix of influences in this song.

Sound Tracks | Interview with Abigail Washburn
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Interview with Abigail Washburn
Description:  As if our debt to China weren't big enough, it turns out we also owe the Asian giant for inspiring Abigail Washburn, a true American original, to become a musician. It's a roundabout story. But you'll get the drift of it in her interview with SOUND TRACKS reporter Arun Rath, plus a sampling of her songs.

Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Interview with Milos Karadaglic
Description:  Watch this interview and you'll see that Milos Karadaglic already has the composure, the confidence and the easy charm of a movie star, which may horrify classical music purists. But all you have to do is listen to realize he's more than a poster boy for the classical guitar. He's smart, self-deprecating, funny, and a sensitive, gifted musician. His fingers are fast, and his intonation is perfect.

Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Tom Harrell Performs Sainte (Ravel)
Description:  Sainte, Ravel's first published composition, was originally written for a vocalist. Tom Harrell says he hears French composer Eric Satie in this piece, and tries to bring out Satie's 'saintly' quality in the music. But after starting out in a prayerful mood, this saint isn't above getting a little funky.

Sound Tracks | Tom Harrell Performs Beau Soir (Debussy)
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Tom Harrell Performs Beau Soir (Debussy)
Description:  It might seem strange that a composer as original as Tom Harrell would throw himself into the melodies of dead French impressionists, but he's done far more than write jazz arrangements of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. While staying true to the melodic roots of the music, he's effectively re-composed these pieces.

Title:  Sound Tracks | Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks
Description:  Youve probably heard this song on the radio this summer. To the bands amazement, its a worldwide hit. Its even big in Turkey, they told us, shaking their collective heads, pleasantly bewildered. But its easy to see why the song has caught on with its rolling, infectious energy, that chorus of heys! and a foreboding lyric that ends up reassuring us were all going to make it back safely.

Sound Tracks | Of Monsters and Men - Dirty Paws
Date: 
Title:  Sound Tracks | Of Monsters and Men - Dirty Paws
Description:  Iceland has a long tradition of Nordic myths and folk tales, many involving spirits and animals transforming themselves into people.

Title:  Sound Tracks | Sanctuary - Antibalas | QUICK HITS
Description:  Sanctuary was first released on the 2007 Antibalas album Security. Its a slow-burner of a tune, in the classic Fela Kuti style: a build-up of rhythm around drums, percussion, and Hammond organ. And then Amayo the lead singer -- begins to preach the words. Where do you find sanctuary in a world that yanks us in multiple directions?

Title:  Sound Tracks | Interview with Antibalas | QUICK HITS
Description:  The music of Antibalas is party music, but its innately political. What does that mean for a band that is trying to bushwhack its way through the tangled world of todays music industry? It means they live the Afrobeat lifestyle from the streets of Brooklyn to the Broadway stage. The bands Nigerian-born lead singer Amayo and trumpet player Jordan McLean share their experiences with Marco Werman.
