Global A Go-Go presents:

Andy McGraw from the University of Richmond joins me this week to discuss a fascinating concert he’s involved in next Wednesday at U of R’s Camp Concert Hall.

Andy’s group Gamelan Raga Kusuma and the Richmond Symphony will team up under the direction of Indonesian master musicians Sumarsam and Darsono to premiere a reconstruction of the Javanese music that Claude Debussy heard at the 1889 Paris Universal Exposition.  The ideas Debussy got from gamelan music — cyclicality, stasis, new ways of using counterpoint, and the unique harmonies of Java — became key elements of his compositions and, through him, were integrated into 20th and 21st century Western classical music.

Andy and I will talk about the concert, about Debussy and gamelan, and we’ll listen to some related recordings, possibly even transcriptions of 1889 wax cylinders.

Also this week: Bassekou Kouyate’s new album, a wide variety of Latin American sounds from Andean pipes to Mexican banda, and some socially conscious klezmer.
