In this series of podcasts made especially for Gaudeamus musicians from different cultures give a highly personal introduction to the music they are in love with. They let you hear music, take you with them into their listening experience, talk and sing.

Dutch pioneering guitarist and composer Aart Strootman kicks off the newest series of Curious Ears. He explores rhythmic patterns and groove-related games in music and gives examples from a wide range of music from the waterdrums of the Baka women to the likes of Philip Glass and Nik Bärtsch, and from Magic Malik’s jazzy rhythms to heavy metal band Meshuggah. Listen to his foray into different kinds of grooves and the bodily movement that music can create.
