Indonesia Madura, Art Music
The gamelan component of topeng dalang classical drama, played trenchantly and bewitchingly by farmers from this island in the Indonesian archipelago (one of three and a half thousand).



Mexico The Festival Of San Miguel Tzinacapan
Double-headed drums, horns and shells, guitars and violins, reed flutes and cascabeles whirled together in festive and ritualistic dance music, an amazing mixture of indian-Mexico and Spanish Middle Ages.



Burkina Faso Lobi Country, Buur Xylophones
Brilliant, jacking, extended, improvisatory, ancient dance music played at the initiation of diviners (drugged with jolonthi, to ward off spells) on a twelve-blade xylophone with calabash resonators.



Munir Bashir The Art Of The Ud
The don gorgon, ablaze in 1971.



Japan Teruhisa Fukuda, Shakuhachi
Six deeply spiritual pieces from the Kinko School, developed in eighteenth century Japan by wandering zen monks for whom this flute music was a pathway to enlightenment.



Mongolia Songs And Morin Khuur
Stupefying throat singing (two notes simultaneously), 'long' songs (covering a very wide register in a single breath) and hyper-expressive 'short' songs; also pieces for the morin khuur fiddle. Warmly recommended.



Turkey The Baglama Of The Yayla
Utterly beautiful contemporary recordings.



Yiddish Songs Tenderness And Madness Passion
Warm, nostalgic, stirring settings for voice, guitar, accordion and violin. Knowing nothing, we can hear Jacques Brel and Jake Thackray.



Cuba Punto And Trova Of Sancti Spiritus
Guajira, trova, guaracha, bolero and punto from the heart of Cuba, lavishly done lutes and tres luminously crossing traditions from Spain, the Canaries and Africa.



Kushal Das Raga Bilaskhani Todi And Raga Sohini
Elegant, serene, new-wave, profoundly tuneful playing, with accompaniment from Abhijit Banerjee's tabla and Sudipta Remy's tampura.



Mauritius Ravanne Drum
The ravanne is a large drum a goatskin stretched over a wooden frame played with the hands, emblematic of the Creole cultural heritage on this island in the Indian Ocean: the music here is fabulous.



Spain Music Of Castilla Y Leon
Startlingly fresh and unusual, these timeless, traditional peasant songs from north-west Spain mostly with percussion accompaniment, sometimes with flute, bagpipe, oboe or rebec.



Mali The Fulani Hoddu
Deep, rough, hypnotic recordings of the Fulani lute (and singing), made by this inspirational French label around Douentza and Bamako, Mali, between 2002-2004.
