Azam Ali has spent the summer touring with Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart's group Bembe Orisha and is usually heard with her Los Angeles world fusion group, Vas. Born in Iran and raised in India, Ali usually sings in a supra-lingua of Farsi, Hindi and sounds of the imagination, but on a new CD called PORTALS OF GRACE (Narada Records), she adapts medieval chants and hymns from across Europe and the Middle East. Ali and her partner, percussionist Greg Ellis create a hybrid Middle Eastern sound with with ouds, hammered dulcimers, dumbeks and chimes decorating the hymns. Azam Ali and Greg Ellis talk about their immersion in an ancient world of song.

Tuesday 09/03/02
We've had Celtic harpist Lisa Lynne perform many times on Echoes before, but never quite like this. In her San Fernando Valley living room, she gathers members of the Lian Ensemble, a group of Iranian exile musicians who add their exotic colors to Lisa's Celtic and Elizabethan tinged themes. Lisa plays music from her newest album, MAIDEN'S PRAYER (New Earth).

STEVE TIBBETTS- Meditative Mayhem
Guitar iconoclast Steve Tibbetts reveals his manic meditations on Echoes. Hailing from Minnesota, Tibbetts has been charting a course through a hallucinogenic world fusion for a quarter century, most of it recorded by the German ECM label. A legend in indie-progressive music circles, Tibbetts garnered additional renown a few years ago when he adapted the chants of Tibetan nun Choying Drolma to his ambient landscapes. On his latest album, A MAN ABOUT A HORSE (ECM Records), Tibbetts debunks the serene concepts of meditative music and creates an electro-acoustic guitar excursion of throbbing rhythms and pyro-technic leads.

Friday 09/06/02
John Williams talks about African designs on classical strings. Best known as an English classical guitarist, less known as founder of the British fusion group Sky, John Williams' new CD, THE MAGIC BOX takes him to Africa, at least virtually. THE MAGIC BOX puts a classical spin on melodies derived from Africa. With his classical guitar in hand, Williams explains his African sojourn.
