#3647: 25 Years Of Real World Records II

Email a Friend

Listen to the second of our two-part celebration of Peter Gabriel’s Real World record label, which is physically based out of an old mill building in the village of Box in the southwest of England, near the ancient standing stones of Avebury and Stonehenge. The label marks its 25th anniversary this year, and for this New Sounds, listen to more from the newly-issued three-disc anthology. There’s music from singer Maryam Mursal, a Somalian refugee  based in Denmark and a work from Tibetan exile Yungchen Lhamo, now based in New York. Then, hear a newly-commissioned work for guitar plus ensemble by composer Joby Talbot from the Dutch classical guitarist Tom Kerstens and his G-plus Ensemble, along with music by English composer, pianist and viola player Jocelyn Pook, who is also known for her film score work.

Listen to Kenyan artist Ayub Ogada, along with the late Tanzanian master musician Hukwe Zawose. There’s also music from the Bristol-based Spiro, who combine classical influences with the traditional folk music of the North of England. Plus, hear music from South Indian singer Sheila Chandra, the Mercury-nominated East London minimalists Portico Quartet, and more.
