Manhattan Transfer  - It's been nearly thirty-five years since Tim Hauser set out to form a harmony vocal quartet sui generis that could authentically embrace varied musical styles, and still create something wholly unique in the field of American popular song. Today, after Grammy Awards by the dozen, worldwide sales in the millions of hits like 'The Boy From New York City,' 'Birdland,' 'Java Jive,' 'Tuxedo Junction' and 'Operator,' Tim Hauser along with Janis Siegel, Cheryl Bentyne and Alan Paul can look back at one of the greatest bodies of work in American popular music. The Manhattan Transfer remain restless, adventurous, limitless and, as the Philadelphia Inquirer so aptly put it, a group that "still can sound dangerous!"

Tinariwen  - Tinariwen is a band of Touareg musicians, members of the nomadic culture of northern Mali's Sahara region and their instantly identifiable sound is a spellbinding, trance-like desert blues. Influenced for decades by western rock and formed in a rebel military camp, this group traded in the traditional stringed instruments for electric guitars to accompany their ornate vocal style. Their participation in the Touareg struggle for independence has informed their lyrics and their gutsy sound.
