#398 - inc. interview with Anne Harkin

Program 398

This program featured an extensive interview with Melbourne percussionist Anne Harkin. She specialises in Arabic styles, and increasingly the rhythms of West Africa. Not only did she demonstrate some of the instruments and rhythms, but we talked about her musical activites, the "Bellydance" phenomenon in Australia, and her desire to accompany "ethno-techno"!
