From the silk road

Today’s “World Wednes­day” broad­cast of From the Library draws upon the mys­tique of the silk road, includ­ing music that comes from or is inspired by coun­tries from Tibet to the Mid­dle East. As one might expect, this encom­pass­es a broad range–solo per­cus­sion­ists to full orches­tra­tions, ancient litur­gi­cal chants from Tibet to mod­ern inter­pre­ta­tions of clas­si­cal Indi­an ragas, short (under 2 min­utes) to long (25 min­utes). Enjoy!

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s pro­gram was pro­duced by Otenth Pader­born.

For more infor­ma­tion on the Cale­don Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Sec­ond Life ref­er­ence libraries in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Cale­don Library Web site, or one of their loca­tions in-world.
