A first-ever tribute to the world�s diverse languages and musics, Tongue Tripping brings together South African, Yiddish, and Native American musical groups. The South African master Bakithi Kumalo, who played with Paul Simon, has put together a band that exudes sweet South African harmonies the Kumalo South African Band, with lyrics and seven African languages; Michael Alpert and the Heymland (Homeland) Ensemble (Michael Winograd, Pete Rushefsky and Sarah Gordon; Yiddish), and the Native American group Ulali (Native languages and vocalizations). We conclude with a first-ever Tower-of-Babel jam by poets and musicians.
