2020-07-31 Classical Goes Global

Soweto String Quartert

Most cultures have their own form of “classical” music. But this week, we dig into western classical music and how artists are combining it with world music elements. Some global covers of western classical gems, some western classical styles and instruments incorporated into global tunes. Will your sense of musical categories be challenged? Probably, yes.
