Newest World Music

The Ides of March turned out to be a bummer for Caesar, however it also marked the beginning of the new year for the Romans. It’s a new season of world music releases at KZSC including station favorites from the experimental fusion group Beats Antique, internationally acclaimed Tuareg guitarist Bombino plus the collaborative work of Sudanese vocalist Alsarah with French electronic artist Debruit. A modern, haunting take on Sudanese music heard through the sonic lens of French electronic, I can’t tell you how much I’m loving “Aljawal Soundway”. And we just received one by Pink Martini with The (“Sound of Music”) Von Trapp Family. Theatrical world music? More on this one next time. Here’s a quick look at 10 new world recordings worth hearing:

1 BEATS ANTIQUE A Thousand Faces, Act I Beats Antique
2 BOMBINO Nomad Nonesuch
3 DEBRUIT AND ALSARAH Aljawal Soundway
4 OMAR SOULEYMAN Wenu Wenu Ribbon
5 LAS CAFETERAS It’s Time Self-Released
6 VAADAT CHARIGIM The World Is Well Lost Burger
7 DIDI FAVREAU Deal With It Didi Favreau
8 BOSSACUCANOVA Our Kind Of Bossa Six Degrees
9 ALSARAH AND THE NUBATONES Silt Wonderwheel
10 JAMES WHETZEL Beats For Venus
