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

The hour of separation is my fave. He can be a bit relentlessly virtuosic on his own and benefits from being reined in as part of a larger group of big talents. Joseph Tawadros (Oud) John Abercro

thankyou @mrbuzzardstubble, can anyone remember the 'earthcore' series from Triple J? I think they were amongst my earliest introduction to world music. R-4946846-1417082462-4259.jpeg.jpg

D = for [Dunkelbunt].

Love their eclectic style. Can't remember when I first contacted them, based in Austria I think, and, just for a lark, emailed them to invite them to Australia. Didn't think any more off it. And then, then, then one evening I get a txt from family member saying [Dunkelbunt] is about to perform in 'The Loft' in Warrnambool at 9pm. And the time is 8.50pm. Aaarrggh.

I was alternately astounded, then spewing. Spewing that I was about to miss out on a live performance from this amazing outfit, astounded that they bothered to get to Australia and were about to perform sortof 'down the road'. I suppose they must have 'bundled' the trip with Womadelaide, or even the Pt. Fairy folkie.

Have a listen to their stuff. Good fun and stylishly encompassing.

Saw her at Womadelaide 2019 where she performed her version of Talking Heads' Remain In Light.

< Performing Talking Heads' "Remain In Light"

One of the great divas of our age, Angélique Kidjo takes on one of the iconic albums of the ‘80s and returns it to Africa. Talking Heads’ ground-breaking Remain In Light album was heavily influenced by the music of West Africa, and Kidjo reimagines the original with her own euphoric vocals, electrifying rhythms and explosive percussion. “We all know that rock music came from the blues and thus from Africa. Now is the time to bring rock back to Africa, connect our minds, and bring all our sounds to a new level of sharing and understanding,” says Kidjo.

And she, and her amazing band, would be one of the select view to inject new life and a new perspective into any song.  Just remembered 'voodoo chile' which demos. the point.

What I really enjoy is anytime they turn up the funk. It's like there's some magic mix of french and african funk that just hits the spot.

Released on the Nonesuch Explorer Series, this album of traditional Balinese music, as played on the Gamelan, is absolutely beautiful music. For those unknowing of what the Gamelan is, I suggest you look it up, there just isn't enough space here to give a faithful description. The Gamelan used on this album is really quite old, and had just undergone it's second restoration prior to this recording in '69. One can only hope it's future preservation is in some way assured.

      All sound good and quiet, even the 3 coloured vinyl, but expect some minor surface noise. While they are not audiophile sq, none of these sound shitty for this type of music like many others. In fact, the sq is quite exceptional for FFS, both coloured Son Lux.

      I have been enjoying some kinda weird folk like objects recently. While I have been listening consistently to Mat Sweet aka Boduf Songs casting Wiccan spells for a number of years now, I have picked up on a few other similar artists of late. I accidentally stumbled upon Gareth Dicksons dreamy ambient folk at Experimedia and a friend @@ericd recently high-lighted a strange and somewhat perverted individual by the name of David Thomas Broughton. Bunch of friggin weirdos, all, but I like 'em for some strange reason. Does anyone have suggestions along similar lines?
       
      Cheers, big ears
