    Listen: Rhiannon Giddens Performs on NPR's "World Cafe" with Francesco Turrisi
    Karen Cox

    Rhiannon Giddens was a guest on NPR's World Cafe, along with multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, with whom she recorded her new album, there is no Other. She spoke with host Talia Schlanger about the album and performed three songs from it: "Ten Thousand Voices," "Pizzica Di San Vito," and "Little Margaret."

    It's "a fascinating collaboration," says Schlanger. "Both Rhiannon and Francesco are devoted students of music history whose mission is to use the past to illuminate the present and to give credit where credit’s due for the way instruments and ideas have moved over time between people. They used all that knowledge to make gorgeous music together on a new album called there is no Other."

    You can hear the conversation and performance here:

    To pick up a copy of there is no Other, which Uncut calls "acoustic roots music at its most glorious," head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. The album can also be heard at Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital service providers. A two-LP vinyl edition, which includes four additional tracks and expanded liner notes, will be released on September 13 and is available to pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store with an exclusive, limited-edition autographed print.
