2011-08-12: Sacred Sounds

sacred music - taiko drumsWhat is sacred music? I’ve asked that question of many musicians, and received many answers. Some even said that all music is sacred. Sounds nice, but no. It’s not. There’s crassly commercial music that doesn’t even try to cloak its purpose. And there’s plain bad music. But I understand that the impulse to create music can be deeply inspired, and it often comes from the intent not just to entertain listeners, but to move and change them.

On this week’s show, we explored some of this music, from Hindi-Christian chant to Jewish gospel to Afro-Sami music and beyond. It wasn’t planned, but the show took on a definite interfaith feel with these collaborations alongside some more traditional sacred music. Enjoy!
