I've just discovered an incredible Internet station called Radio Asia, which is playing some absolutely wonderful Asian music. As I key this in, there's a track from Indonesia, with more blue notes than you'd find in a Mississippi juke joint.

You can find the programme at http://www.asia.si.edu/podcasts/radio_asia/player.html , where it is hosted by Smithsonian Folkways. But you may have to hurry. The station seems to have been set up only to celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month.

From Afghanistan, the artist, Ustad Mohammad Omar, playing "Tabla solo in the rhythmic cycle..." WOW...I'd love to see that...his hands must just f-l-y so fast with those rhythms!

Here's the recording info:

SFW40439_103 Tabla solo in the rhythmic cycle of jhaptal (10-beat cycle) Track Artist Zakir Hussein Notes Indian tabla player Zakir Hussain improvises in jhaptal, a 10-beat repeating rhythmic pattern, accompanied on the rebâb by Afghan virtuoso Ustad Mohammad Omar.

Hi Kat, I hope they leave it up as well. You've got to hand it to Smithsonian Folkways for their farsightedness in obtaining the Folkways catalogue in the first place, and for all the brilliant work they've done with the label since.

Ustad Mohammed Omar played the rebab (or rubab, or robab) - Zakir Hussein was his tabla player for the session the Smithsonian recorded in the US. I have the CD. There is a bit of Omar (not well filmed, the video and sound are out of sync) on YouTube. He was brilliant (died a few years ago).
