It’s no secret to Chicagoans that the Old Town School of Folk Music  offers diverse musical offerings.  WFMT’s sister station, WTTW, recently teamed up with the Old Town School to present a new program showcasing two world-renowned musicians: Aysenur Kolivar and Noura Mint Seymali.

Kolivar is a singer-composer who intends to preserve and revive the female vocal traditions of the Black Sea region in her native Turkey.  Seymali blends ancient musical traditions from her native Mauritania with modern, funk-inspired instrumentation.  

Both musicians visited the Old Town School and Chicago schools for performances and workshops.

WFMT host Candice Agree narrates the half hour program, which will air on WTTW on Friday, July 29 from 7:30-8:00 pm and Sunday, July 31 from 4:00-4:30 pm.

Watch the videos below for an exclusive sneak peek.
