Thursday May 27th, 2010 with David Dalle

With the heat wave that hit Ottawa this week, I looked to music from various people and places in and bordering the Sahara desert for the first hour. The second hour was given to a wonderful recording of Sima Bina with the Dastan Ensemble featuring a suite in Shushtari mode of Khorosan folk songs and vocal and instrumental improvisation.
