Emily Portman Trio performs “Green Hollin” at WOMEX from Michal Shapiro on Vimeo.

“Green Hollin” had a traditional melody, with new words by Portman. “Hollin” and “Birk” are archaic terms for holly and birch, respectively.
With Lucy Farrell on on viola and Rachel Newton on harp.

Welcome!

Here’s where you’ll find my weekly original world music video blogs that appear on Huffington Post, as well as an archive starting in April of 2009.

This is also the place where you will find video that is exclusive to my site. I’ve traveled to places like Uzbekistan, Morocco, and Taiwan and no matter where I go I have found amazingly talented and creative people working in every genre from the deepest traditions to the cutting edge.

It’s been incredibly rewarding to interview them and to capture some of what they do on video. Enjoy what you see and hear, and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback.
