Just Released! "Bridges: A Musical Journey" - December 19, 2014


A truly international project spearheaded by Chilean composer/producer Igor Ledermann, "Bridges: A Musical Journey" features top musicians from 5 continents including countries such as Chile, Australia, USA, Nepal, UK, Austria, Finland, Russia, Mexico, Turkey, Colombia, Singapore, France, Brazil, Italy, Greece, Spain, Iran, Israel, Ethiopia, and Uruguay.

Ian's kalimba playing can be heard on the opening instrumental track and most prominently on the powerful "Yo Soy" which features a traditional Indian poem sung by Ledermann, who is best known as the founder of world music group Fractal.

Among the many other musicians on the album are ethnic wind instrumentalist Randall Ledermann (Sting), internationally-acclaimed Turkish flutist Burak Besir, two-time Latin Grammy Award winner Daniel Figueiredo, top Finnish kantele player Timo Väänänen, and prominent Russian guitarist Roman Miroshnichenko (Steve Vai, Al Di Meola.)

For more on the project see the Project Bridges website.

NPR Feature



Ian's music was recently featured on the NPR program "Here & Now", airing on virtually every NPR station in the U.S., in a program highlighting the new Hollis NH-based radio series known as Dream Farm Radio, where Ian previously interviewed.

You can listen to the archived NPR segment here, which also features the music of saxophonist Daniel Bennett and 4-time Grammy-winning cellist Eugene Friesen. Huge thanks to Dream Farm host Julie Lavender (herself a talented jazz singer/songwriter) for the feature!
