#3594: A World of World Music

Email a Friend
Sheela Bringi

There’s a world of world music for this New Sounds.  Listen to an electric distorted version of West African trance music from Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara, along with a powerful song of praise that explores the links between India and the Balkans from Sheela Bringi. There’s also music from Maracatu New York, who are a band steeped in the maracatu band music of northeast Brazil.  Their sound manages to fuse Brazilian rhythms with those of traditional New Orleans Second Line music and the Mardi Gras Indians. 

Then, listen to music from the Tunisian percussionist Imed Alibi, who mixes drums with digital beats, then layers keyboards, violin, accordion, qanun and nay flute. Put all of that together with driving guitar lines from co-producer Justin Adams, and top it with vocals from Tunisian singer Emel Mathlouthi for a “soundtrack for a new Arab of the 21st Century.”  Plus music from the Czech duo DVA who make “pop for non-existing radios” or “folklore of non-existing nations” and more.
