Borrowing the title from the Rudyard Kipling poem "The Ballad of East and West," host Bill McGlaughlin spends this week exploring the music of Asia.

Traveling from Turkey to Japan and everywhere in between, we will listen to instruments, sounds, folk tunes and poetry. Some that are the unique musical voices that define a country's identity, some that are shared in common and many that are borrowed by western composers.
