Desert rock and Sir James MacMillan

Verity Sharp goes on a musical adventure of genre juxtaposition. Kel Assouf’s modern desert rock sound brings together a jazz drummer, an Ishumar guitarist and a rock-loving electronic producer. Conductor Sir James MacMillan starts the celebrations for his 60th birthday later this year with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and two special concerts. And film director and musician Jim Jarmusch reignites his duo with experimental lute player Jozef Van Wissem for a minimal record of subdued electronics, guitar drones and unadorned lute.
Produced by Rebecca Gaskell.
