Wild Goats & Unmarried WomenShe'Koyokh
United by their love of rip-roaring artfully delivered klezmer, She’Koyokh spin tales of wild goats, unmarried women and broken hearts drawn from the rich folk traditions of Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Balkans.
The Rough Guide To Latin Rare Groove
All the tracks in this treasure trove are either favourites of DJs and collectors but are otherwise unknown, have not yet been released, or have not been digitally reissued before. Unlike most Rough Guides, you may not recognize any names, but that is the point. When you dig deep, the payback is even greater.
The Rough Guide To The Music Of Mali
Mali is a fabled land of musical giants and this Rough Guide features the towering figures of Oumou Sangare, Ali Farka Touré and Basekou Kouyate. However the music of Mali is now under threat as never before. In the words of singer Fatoumata Diawara, ‘music has always brought hope in Mali. Music has always been strong and spiritual.’
Eastern Moon RisingBoris Kovač & La Campanella
In the half-light of an Eastern Moon Rising, Boris Kovač welcomes you with a beating jazz heart to a place where the East and West converge, freeing the musical soul to roam.
The Rough Guide To Scottish Music
Scotland’s music is an evolving story of originality and musicianship evoking life in the highlands and islands, the farm, the tenements and now increasingly the cosmopolitan city streets. Celebrate the contemporary sounds of Lau, Admiral Fallow and Karine Polwart alongside classic craft from The Campbells Of Greepe and Kathleen MacInnes.
Riverboat Records: Music From The Source
Riverboat Records: Celebrating 25 years of making music from around the world ‘Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.’ Jerome K Jerome: Three Men In A Boat
Left Foot Dance Of The YiShanren
The mountains of south-western China have inspired the folk traditions of those living in their shadows for millennia. Now, Shanren follow their ancestors' footsteps with a mash of traditional Chinese folk and buzzing modernity on their infectious international debut Left Foot Dance Of the Yi.
The Rough Guide To Arabic Café
This Rough Guide concocts a collection of laid-back music you can hear pumped out from street-side coffee-houses across North Africa and the Middle East. Sip the historic infusion with musical masters Maurice El Medioni, Akim El Sikameya, Ali Hassan Kuban, Salamat and Abdel Gadir Salim.
