SAVAE: ANCIENT VOICES, LOST ECHOES 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.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH SAVAE 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
BILL LASWELL: DUB SABOTEUR 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.
