Sardinia Guitar Song
Cantu a chiterra, in which competing singers take turns showing off vocal daring, breath control, endurance and style, in settings of nineteenth century poetry.



Michi Sarmiento Aqui Los Bravos! The Best of Michi Sarmiento Y Su Combo Brava 1967-77
Headlong, monster guagancos, descargas and cumbias, with pumping electric bass, Joe Arroyo at the mic, badarse metal percussion, tumbadora and timbales, trumpets, guitar, piano, Michi's sax and clarinet. Rough!



Sato Kunitaka Wandering Shadow Of Southern Streets
Blind travelling musician with a voice as intensely haunted and elemental as Charley Patton not standard Okinawa fare at all accompanying himself on sanshin (southern shamisen) and tategoto (upright koto).



Saudi Arabia Mohammed Aman, The Tradition Of Hejaz
Fine singing and oud-playing, with zither and violin, and the percussion which characterises the hejaz style nasgar and naqrazan, darbuka and tar, both held at the same time in the left hand, struck by the right.



Scattered Melodies Korean Kayagum Sanjo
The kayagum is a kind of smaller version of the Japanese koto. Stark and haunting, kayagum sanjo employs a gradually increasing tempo, focussed improvisation, elastic rhythms, intense snaps and vibrato.



Secular Music From Uganda Uganda, 1950 And 1952
Likembe thumb-piano get-togethers, yodels and ekidongo harps, leg-rattles, vocal knees-ups, magwala horn groups, flutes, xylophones and drums.




Seguida Love Is
Firing Latin rock with a doubled-up horn section, conjunto-style from Puerto Rico via the South Bronx. They opened the Fania showcase at Yankee Stadium; supported Sly. Mambo Rock was their big hit.




Selda Vurulduk Ey Halkim Unutma Bizi
Her fourth LP, from 1979, on the eve of the coup d'etat in Turkey. (The military government hauled her into court three times.) Charged songs with reverbed guitars and baglamas about mountains, families, desolation...



Selda
Terrific, angrily socialist Turkish folk music crossed with synths, fuzz and stoner flute. Her second LP.



The Semi-Colon Ndia Egbuo Ndia (Afro-Jigida)
Bee's knees Nigerian Afro-rock from 1976. The CDs are exceptionally well-presented, with plenty of musical extras, and a book of photos, notes and translations.
