When we use the phrase “classical music,” it’s usually assumed we’re talking about Western classical music: music that is rooted in the traditions of Europe. But other countries all over the globe have their own traditions of classical or art music—and something pretty incredible happens when there is a dialogue between them.
On this week’s episode of Second Inversion, we’re exploring music that crosses genres and geographical boundaries alike, discovering new sounds and new definitions of what “classical music” means in the 21st century. Tune in for music from Peru, Haiti, West Africa, Iran, Vietnam, and beyond.
