From

Listen to the second in our two-part celebration of Peter Gabriel’s Real World record label, which recently marked its 25th anniversary. Fun fact: the label itself 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.

For this New Sounds, listen to more from the Real World Records celebratory 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.
