About the show

Playing tracks by

BSKSA Saudi Arabia, Geir jenssen, Peter Nooten & Michael Brook, Lamp of the Universe, Ayub Ogada and more.

I have always loved the sound of Djivan Gasparyan's music. He plays the duduk, a double reed instrument related to the oboe. It's got a great melancholy, other-worldy feel to it.

I took the "other-wordly" idea to make a mix of music that is vaguely foreign sounding, at least foreign to my American ears. The music is Middle Eastern, Asian, African, Eastern European and Indian.

I go back to a familiar source for some of the sounds, the Shortwave Music blog of Myke Weiskopf. Whether it's the night call to prayer in Bulgaria or Qur’an recitation from BSKSA Saudi Arabia, Myke has great recordings that everyone should take the time to investigate.

At various times haunting, beautiful, calming or hypnotic, the music in this mix will hopefully stir your imagination.

This mix has had a recent resurgence here on Mixcloud, I guess I'll have to revisit it myself. Thanks for reminding me about it. Cheers!
