Kronos Quartet: Alternative Radio: Another World is Possible
with host David Barsamian
28 July 2007 / 19:30
Barbican Theatre

Part of New Crowned Hope - A Festival by Peter Sellars

Issues and insights neglected by mainstream media find voice on independent radio programme Alternative Radio, made in the US but broadcast world-wide. Host and creator David Barsamian transforms his sound format for the stage, interweaving performances by Kronos Quartet and Wu Man with discussion by writer, filmmaker and political commentator Tariq Ali. Global issues are musically engaged as the people on stage respond to each other in discussion and music with sharp insight, daring and radical hope.

The programme is chosen jointly by the artists no more than 24 hrs before the performance but it is likely to include music from Afghanistan, Argentina, China Ethiopia, Iceland, India, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Mexico, Nubia, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Turkey, United States and Uzbekistan.
