Music from Tunisia

One of my favorite oud players, Anouar Brahem, has released a new CD, ‘The Astounding Eyes of Rita.’

Friday’s Caravan program will air selections from this new ECM set, which includes a small ensemble of bass clarinet, string bass, and percussion. We’ll also hear from Ez-Zouhour, the Lofti Jormana Group, Sadok Tounsi, classic arab-andalusian music recorded in 1960.
