Celestial Voices

Celebrating the human voice with music from Tashi Lhunpo Monks, Bulgarian Voices Angelite and Mahotella Queens.

Celebrating the human voice, from the other-worldly Tashi Lhunpo Monks of Tibet to the mellifluous harmonies of the Bulgarian Voices Angelite and the joyful sound of South Africa's Mahotella Queens. Plus, taarab music from Zanzibar, Balkan jazz with a dash of bluegrass from Norway's Farmer's Market and Congo-mambo vintage 1975 from Orchestre Special Liwanza.
