Thursday October 17th, 2019 with David Dalle
Franco, soukous from Tanzania and Kenya, Utsav Lal, Kamancello, Kurdish music and more.

Starting off again today with Franco, but after a wonderful song from the end of his career, we will hear some soukous from Tanzania and Kenya with bands founded mainly by Congolese immigrants in the 70's. We will also hear music from Kamancello and Kurdish music.

Pianist Utsav Lal has been invited to play at Steinway Hall in New York City, a very prestigious honour for many great pianists in various traditions (such as Pablo Ziegler here), but certainly none have played Hindustani music on the piano before at Steinway Hall! If you are fortunate enough to be in NYC next Wednesday evening, there is no better way to spend it then at Steinway Hall seeing Utsav Lal solo!
