Echoes is a daily two-hour music soundscape “Music for the Chillout of the Night,” distributed by Public Radio International with host John Diliberto. Echoes brings together a wide array of styles, from acoustic to electronic, jazz to space music, the avant-garde to rock. Echoes is a sound that is cross-cultural and trans-millennial, merging cultures and forms, technology and tradition, the ancient past and the possible future.
Since its genesis in 1989, Echoes has been creating chilled environments drawn from electronic, ambient, space music, world fusion and contemporary classical music. It’s one of the keenly unique sounds in public radio. But while those sounds are still an integral part of the program, Echoes now blends contemporary vocals into the mix with roughly a 50/50 split between the two styles. Drawing upon singer-songwriters, dream-pop and electronica, the voices Moby, Beck, Bon Iver, Lana Del Rey, Coldplay and Tori Amos are now an integral part of the Echoes soundscape.
