Nori 8.22.16

Nori’s new record World Anew features two cover tracks; Nina Simone’s “Plain Gold Ring,” and “Arirang,” a Korean folk song, but the distance between the worlds those tune’s come from seems not so far with the Austin band’s fresh synthesis of jazz, folk, and world music. Nori’s debut full length dissolves divisions and builds bridges between world sounds with seemingly irreconcilable differences–its a sonic vision of a harmonious future, with Akina Adderley on vocals, Erik Telford on trumpet, Nick Litterski on keys, Aaron Allen on upright bass, and Andy Beaudoin on drums leading us towards it.

Nori joined John Aielli during Eklektikos this morning and played a few songs live on the air. If you missed it, you can check out their set at the bottom of the page.
