Still More World Music


Sample an hour of global music, some rooted in traditional instruments, and some music that brings the west aboard as well. Listen to some frenetic Turkish Roma (gypsy) music by the virtuoso Cüneyt Sepetçi & Orchestra Dolapdere, along with music from the nomadic Tuareg people of the Sahara desert. Then, there’s music recorded on the border of Cameroon and the Congo, as well as something from the star-studded outfit Rocket Juice & the Moon - featuring Damon Albarn, Tony Allen, Flea, Fatoumata Diawara and the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.  Plus, brand-new music from Ethiopian jazzer Mulatu Astatke and something new from Syrian singer and dabke artist Omar Souleyman.  And more.
