World Music

#1  Postby THWOTH » Jun 12, 2011 1:23 am

It might be a bit of a meaningless term, a catchall genre, but this thread is for traditional and indigenous musics from outside the western tradition - though not exclusively of course. Whatever... :dunno:

I'll inaugurate the thread with the sublimely intoxicating, and intoxicated, Taraf de Haïdouks.

Dao Dezi - A Breton band that merged the celtic with electronic long before the likes of Afro-Celt Sound System or any others came along.


My fav' track off their World Mix Album, which i bought by chance in a charity shop years ago.

Those bargain-bucket finds are often the sweetest. :D I like :this:, reminds me of Jah Wobble in places. I'm definitely going to check them out. :cheers:

This Bretonesque Celticification is by Anglo-French honkers Blowzabella. I used to have these guys on a cassette tape I brought at a gig - but it went the way of such things, being chewed up by the car stereo one day :(

Cop the heavy-metal hurdy-gurdy playing!

I once applied for a job as a mustard cutter.

But unfortunately I wasn’t quite good enough.

Someone posted about the tuvan throat singers in the What's playing thread, and I instantly fell in love with it. :)

That was me. :D If you like it you might want to check out the film Genghis Blues, a documentary about blind US Blues singer Paul Pena's trip to Tuva to take part in their national singing competition.

Couldn't find the studio version of this, which is mindbogglingly good, and would have been nice for showcasing the sound but they do a fair job of it live.
