2013-02-22 Top 10 World Music CDs, February 2013 edition

Red Baraat - Shruggy JiLots of new names on the chart this month — if my math is right, there are just three holdovers from January, including the bhangra stylings of #1 Red Baraat. More Indian flavors follow with the new release from raga slide-guitar virtuoso Debashish Bhattacharya. Also included: Oratnitza updates Bulgarian folk, Vusi Mahlasela sings to the people, Leni Stern continues her affair with West Africa, Flavia Coehlo shows new directions in Brazilian sound, Mr. Haris Pilton does some Gypsy dance tunes, Mop Mop finds a mystical isle of world-jazz-funk, Camile does live vocal gymnastics, and Koby Israelite shows that blues know no borders.

2012-11-09 Top 10 Global CDs, November edition

Fangnawa ExperienceI love music. And I love sharing it with you. And this month’s Top 10 chart is full of amazing albums that are well worth sharing. Listeners seemed to especially dig the cuts by Samuel Yirga, Bollywood Brass Band, Yannick Noah, and Fanga & Maalem Abdallah Guinea. But check out the show for yourself; you’re bound to find your own new favorites. From the tradimodern Korean sound of Geomungo Factory to the funky dub of Super Hi-Fi, there’s something for everyone.
