An album of double bass and theorbo duets is really  not something that comes around that often, so when FARANGI, a collaboration between  bass magician Renaud Garcia Fons, and virtuoso lutenist, Claire Antonini was released in May, it made quite an impact.  Drawing on material from the Middle Ages, from the Baroque era, North African folk music, and some original compositions, it is an elegant and engaging conversation between two extraordinary musical minds, and it is the featured album this Saturday on Vespertine.
