Rhiannon Giddens, whose collaborative project Our Native Daughters released its debut album in February, continues her exploration of world music with the May 3rd release of There Is No Other, an album recorded in Dublin with Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi and produced by Joe Henry. The title (stylized as there is no Other) refers to the marginalizing practice of othering, which includes, but is not limited to, discrimination and prejudice on the basis of group identity. The music the pair has created explores how sounds moved from Africa and the Arabic world to influence music throughout Europe and the Americas. Its all about movement, for both of us. . . movements of human beings and how we affect each other, Giddens recently told The Irish Times. If you just look at our range of instruments, where theyve come from and how theyve traveled across the world, its pretty amazing. The way that both of us approach music is very similar because were both educated about where the music is coming from. But when it comes to playing, were both just playing what we feel.
