World Music Recommendations from Fellow Travellers

Inspired by a conversation on a plane today...

This band, The Sowers Group, has some Australian links in the recording process. It was recommended by a passenger (who is a sound engineer) sitting next to me on the trip from Solomon Islands to Australia. In return for this recommendation, I provided the Tassili Album by Tinarwinen. Both of us were please with our new discoveries.

In response to: Msg #160411 Great idea!

I'll second this idea of recommending music we hear in the rest of the world away and out of one's own country and in the local language. Otherwise we will be getting a tsunami of English/American versus 'ethnic music'. What do you think? Reply to this

This is one of the reasons this whole forum started. Dancing Dave was the motivator behind this forum, with the purpose of sharing different music from around the world. Reply to this

I went to a conference a while back with people from all over the world. This song from Ghana was a hit and still remember the dance to this day.
