David Sommerstein’s latest music pick

BirdsongsA Guide To The Birdsong of South America.
The birds are back in the North Country. Spring is here. My favorite new music right now features bird calls – remixed. South America’s most cutting edge DJs, from Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, remix actual calls of South American birds into beautiful, transporting, and sometimes haunting audio landscapes. The beat is anchored in the pulse of nature and South America’s musical common currency  – cumbia. Bonus: the album is a benefit for two Ecuadorian birding organizations.
