The Kronos Quartet take yet another musical journey on their upcoming album, Kronos Caravan.
The set, which comes out on April 18, is the group's first with cellist Jennifer Culp. While the Kronos lineup is new, the quartet's roving musical interests are still on display.
Pieces in the all-premiere album range from the Gypsy-inspired themes of "Turceasca" to the Indian-inflected "Aaj Ki Raat" and a version of surf-guitar godfather Dick Dale's Armenian-derived "Misirlou Twist."
The Kronos Quartet will embark on the U.S. leg of their Tonight Is the Night tour in May.
Kronos Quartet tour dates:
May 3; Iowa City, Iowa; Hancher Auditorium
May 7; Berkeley, Calif.; Zellerbach Auditorium
May 9; Irvine, Calif.; Irvine Barclay Theater
May 13; New York, N.Y.; St. Ignatius Church
