#3646: 25 Years Of Real World Records I

Email a Friend

Listen to the first of our two part celebration of Peter Gabriel’s Real World record label, which marks its 25th anniversary this year. For the occasion, there's a new three-disc anthology of eclectic international releases and inspired collaborations, including music from the very first release, Passion, Peter Gabriel's soundtrack to the Martin Scorsese film “The Last Temptation of Christ.”  Hear that, along with Sufi prayer music from Pakistan from the late, great Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan – his song “Mustt, Mustt” – one that he recorded several times for Real World.

There's also music from the Uzbek singer, songwriter, and musician Sevara Nazarkhan, some Americana roots music from the English singer Charlie Winston, and music from the Ugandan musician Geoffrey Oryema, aided by none other than Brian Eno and Peter Gabriel. Plus, there’s Kazakh singing from China courtesy of the group Mamer, along with the guitar-wielding Tuareg band from northern Mali, Toumast, and a piece from the Sardinian vocal quartet Tenores di Bitti. (Part 1 of 2)
