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

Here are some terrific collaborations/improvisations from musicians from Turkey through to India.   Persian Night Silence Desert - Mohammed Reza Shajrian & Kayhan Kalhor   Persian/Turkish.

< Four months since the release of his first single with the Music in Exile label, South Sudanese legend and Melbourne’s adopted son Gordon Koang has released his latest offering.

‘Stand Up (Clap Your Hands)’ is a favourite from Koang’s live performances, an invitation to the audience to get up and strut their stuff. He comments on the ‘seriousness’ of music in his adopted country, asking listeners to ‘show us your style, give us your attention’, to dance with their loved ones and feel the message of his music; namely - peace, love and unity. The song revolves around the classic line ‘I love you, audience’, delivered in Gordon’s heart winning style. >

Iso Boogie 2.7: T.P. Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou special

https://www.discogs.com/artist/357255-TP-Orchestre-Poly-Rythmo

 

< Band from Cotonou in Benin (ex Dahomey), "T.P." stands for the French "Tout Puissant", which means "All Mighty".
Originally founded as Orchestre Poly-Disco in 1968 with original members Melome Clement (founder, vocals), Bentho Gustave (bass), Bernard 'Papillon' Zoundegnon (guitar) and others. Seeking to expand and in search of a soul singer, Bentho and Papillon lured Vincent Ahehehinnou from Daho Jazz, a band with little prospect of major success that often performed in seedy venues.
Due to changes in producers and financiers switched its name to Orchestre El Ritmo before finally establishing themselves as Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou after signing with Adissa Seidou, the owner of the Albarika Store label, in 1969.
After twelve years between successful records and triumphal tours, Vincent Ahehehinnou he left the group on May 28, 1978 after disagreements with Adissa Seidou. The latter wanted to put aside the late Melome Clement to establish his grip on Poly-Rythmo. Vincent, who had protested these maneuvers, had received death threats from Adissa, voodoo rites in support.
From the 1980s, the group lost its notoriety, but continued to play and band members have changed along the way.
Their output has been extremely prolific numbering upwards of 50 LPs and nearly three hundred 45s. As their name implies, the music relies on a blend of rhythmic persussive elements. It draws from the French heritage of Benin along with the influence of their anglophone neighbors like Nigeria and Ghana. These influences and rhythmic elements form the backdrop for varied styles they play, a mix ranging from afrobeat, highlife, jazz, soul, rhumba and latin music. Tracks are sung in either French or their native Fon tongue.  >

      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
