So due to popular demand (or at least two "likes" to the idea), I'm starting a thread dedicated to the weird, wonderful world of erm, "World Music". Here we can enjoy the folk/rock/fusion/gumbo that we go and see at Womad and the like. Currently, I've been getting back into a group I saw a Womad a few years back, from the Ukraine: DakhaBrakha. It's been hard to get their stuff here, but fortunately, they're now on bandcamp: http://dakhabrakha.bandcamp.com/album/yahudky Lots of tribal rythms, ambient cello and amazing vocal work. The title track from Yahudky is especially good. My other favourite at the moment is Niyaz's album, "Nine Heavens". Azam Ali has a beautiful voice. I like to think of these guys as the Persian answer to Loreena Mckennit - a solid folk background with sensitive use of modern gear.
