Where in the World?: Music by Stephan Micus

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

As of 2004, Stephan Micus (MEE-koos) has recorded over 20 solo albums of his multi-tracked, multi-ethnic music, mostly for the ECM Records label. But three decades earlier, the young musician stopped to visit WBAI in New York, and later Charles Amirkhanian at KPFA, and left an hour-long tape of his music before disappearing into the ozone. This program includes improvisations for wooden recorders, sitar, zither, cymbals, bamboo flute, and concert flute and is played by Micus himself. Micus has traveled widely throughout Europe (especially Spain), North Africa, the Middle East, India and the United States, studying the music of each country and region. Each selection is an inspiring spiritual and meditative gem.
