In the heart of San Antonio a group of singers has been unearthing ancient hymns and songs drawn from Judeo-Christian traditions around the world. Among their CDs are NATIVE ANGELS EL MILAGRO DE GUADALUPE (Talking Taco Records), and their latest, ANCIENT ECHOES. They're called SAVAE [SAH-vay], the San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble. They sing in Aramaic, Arabic, and Hebrew, creating a sound both ancient and timeless. We travel to San Antonio where SAVAE talks about their heavenly sound.

Join us in the living room of SAVAE [SAH-vay] the San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble when they intone the hymns and songs of their new CD, ANCIENT ECHOES. SAVAE has created an international following for music that unearths ancient Judeo-Christian hymns from around the world, sometimes played with medieval instruments, other times using Aztec drums and Meso-American wind instruments. But always centered on their seven voice harmonies. We travel to the living room in San Antonio where SAVAE create their music to hear them perform live.

Bill Laswell has been one of the most provocative figures in modern music for over two decades. The producer and bassist came to renown as the producer of Herbie Hancock's mid-80s hit, "Rock-it" and productions of Mick Jagger and Nona Hendryx. But Laswell's real art was as a sonic provocateur and Dub music assassin. He put together hallucinogenic world music ensembles including Materiel, deep ambient excursions and free jazz assaults with Last Exit and Sonny Sharrock, all informed by the sound shifting aesthetic of Reggae dub music. In this first of two features, we hear about the art of sound, collaboration, and deep bass dub with Bill Laswell.
