Tumbele! Biguine, Afro And Latin Sounds From The French Caribbean, 1963-74
The lovely, overlooked music of Guadeloupe and Martinique, which mixes the heavy drums and rhythms of Haiti, the Congo and Puerto Rico into jazz and calypso, and the lilting gentility of the local biguine.



A Hawk And A Hacksaw The Way The Wind Blows
Partly recorded in a remote Moldovan village with members of Fanfare Ciocarlia (and polished off in Albuquerque with a little help from a nineteen-year-old, pre-Beirut Zach Condon).

The Theodore Vassilikos Ensemble powerfully performing Petros Bereketis extended variations on eight modes the most important composer of the golden age of Byzantine music, an eastward Bach.



Tanzania Wagogo Songs
Chimelougali is yodelling; luchenze is hooting whilst darting the tongue from side to side; kuama are trembling sounds, and rhythmic interjections. Including polyphonies, and a few with instruments.



Madagascar Antanosy Country, Sarandra
Eastern vibes and high emotions in this singing, accompanied by the sosolu flute, rocking mandaly and jejo bory lutes, the atranatra xylophone-on-legs, the lokanga fiddle.



Ethiopia Ari Polyphonies
Dramatic, intricate singing from South West Ethiopia non-verbal, turning the voice inside, as an instrument sometimes with lyre, riffing till death, clapping, flutes from space, bells and other accompaniments.



Guadeloupe The Quadrille Tradition
Creole, accordion-led quadrilles derived from 19th-century French high society. Sweetly melodious, highly rhythmic, Caribbeanized with a deep African twist. Tanboudbass drum, siyak guitar, triangle, chacha shaker.



Uzbekistan Farhod Qori Halimov, Classical Tadjik Songs
Shashmaqom trio improvisation from Uzbekistan, artful and serious: heartfelt singing and fine tanbur lute playing, set off by the accompaniment of dutor and rabob lutes, and doyra percussion.



Turkey Music From The Yayla
Ceremonial music from villages in south-west Turkey, featuring a range of saz lutes, violin, and sipsi (a small oboe).



Uzbekistan Monajat Yultchieva
Deeply moving singing from Ferghana in Central Asia classical, slow, suspenseful and meditative in a world of pain accompanied by lutes, chang (a psaltery), nay flute, dayera tambourine, and ghijak spike fiddle...



Aruna Sairam Padam, Singing Tanjore-Style
Ragas with intensely controlled and expressive singing from South India, in the uncommon, neglected Carnatic tradition.



Peru Julio Benavente Diaz, Charango And Songs From Cuzco
On a kind of miniature guitar, laminated, with steel strings wonderful, virtuosic performances of the poignant, melancholic music of the Campesinos and the Cholos of Peru.



Togo Kabiye Orchestras And Lithophones
Highly rhythmic ensembles of percussion, flutes, whistles and trumpets from the mountainous north of the country; and brilliant pichanchalassi playing, five flat stones struck with two oval stones.
