Why Birds Sing
3.5.11 (Audio: 1 hr 30 min)
This concert connects the living sounds of the natural world to the traditions of global rhythmic innovation and improvisation. Inspired by the melodies and beats of birds, insects, whales, water, and wind, Rothenberg blends spontaneous musical inventiveness with a sense of rhythm, exuberance, and listening to nature. His book and CD “Why Birds Sing” has been published in six languages and turned into a BBC feature.
