This fiery 6-piece Basque outfit from the mid-70's released a couple of folk-prog albums similar in style to Steeleye Span, Pentangle and Fairport Convention. They integrate many progressive elements to their sound (especially on their second album) but their material is predominantly folk, with male and female vocalists alternately singing solo or in chorus. As compared to many Spanish folk bands, however, Izukaitz make comparatively minor use of percussion. Instead, they'll treat you to the usual guitar/keyboard/bass set with some flute and fiddle, plenty of acoustic guitar, some percussion as well as local (Basque) instruments such as goxoak and xirula.

Jazz, World | Label: Giro Music

Flamboyance and delicacy for this new album by Kora Jazz Trio directed by Eric Legnini. Despite obvious historical links between jazz and African traditional music few projects succeed the fusion of these musics …. A pioneer of the genre, the Kora Jazz Trio returns with a 6th album made by the eclectic Eric Legnini. This one sublimates the compositions of the pianist Abdoulaye Diabaté, as well as the very beautiful interpretations of the standards that are Via Con me of Paolo Conté, Sodade immortalized by Cesaria Evora and Moanin 'of the Jazz Messengers of Art Blakey.

New Age, Ethnic Fusion, Relaxation, Spiritual | Label: Triloka | # 7639

Like Greatest Hits of the Kali Yuga, The Best of Krishna Das samples the singer's earlier devotional works, here drawing upon his albums One Track Heart, Pilgrim Heart, Breath of the Heart, Live on Earth, and Door of Faith. A devotee of Maharaj Ji Neem Karoli Baba, Krishna Das has spent much of his adult life making good on his vow to use his singing voice to alleviate suffering in the world. Krishna Das is that most wonderful blend of Eastern and Western cultures; originally a resident of Long Island, N.Y., he studied in northern India as a young man and has since spent decades reinterpreting the sacred music of that land in ways that are pleasant and often surprising. As a man who sounds at times like Waylon Jennings and who is obviously enamored of the "lila" or divine playfulness, Krishna Das seems to enjoy deliberately toying with the unusual and even humorous aspects of the East/West dichotomy, as when on the album One Track Heart he sang a "Krishna Waltz" that sounded more than a little like the old cowboy tune "Get Along Little Dogies." As an encapsulation of his life's work, this Krishna Das best-of collection is entirely devoted to Sri Neem Karoli Baba and through him to the One Deity with a thousand names and as many aspects as there are atoms in the universe.

Jazz / World Music / Avant-Garde Jazz / African Traditions / West African

The term "cultural imperialism" is often used, justly, when Western musicians appropriate aspects of third world music for their own, watering it down to listener-friendly levels and giving scant acknowledgement to its original creators. Whereas this sort of approach has been the unfortunate rule, from Paul Simon to David Byrne, every once in a while a glorious exception emerges. Such an exception is Swedish percussionist Bengt Berger's Bitter Funeral Beer band. Berger, who devoted lengthy periods of study to West African music, particularly that of Ghana, assembled a large contingent of fellow Swedes, trained them in various aspects of West African traditions and, most importantly, chose Ghanaian folk themes with utterly beautiful and irresistible melodic lines from which to improvise.

Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Svart Records (SVART145CD)

Malady’s eponymous album was a deserved underground hit, a beautifully realised piece of original Finnish progressive rock which had its roots very strongly in the sound of the early 70s. The second album Toinen toista, out in February 2018, goes deeper. Composed and arranged as a collaborative piece by the band, Toinen toista has enough detail to keep one captivated for repeated listens. The music is glazed with the kind of homegrown sweetness only vintage Scandinavian Prog Rock can offer but its insides are complex, with layer upon layer of things to discover. Comments lyricist Juuso Jylhänlehto, “This album is open to many interpretations and laden with symbolism, but at its core lays the basic questions of being human and the transient nature of things.”

Galwad y Mynydd were a Welsh folk-rock combo with the emphasis on the Welsh - they sang all their songs in their native tongue and were clearly more interested in appealing to their peers than hitting the international hit parade with their spare but compelling melodies. The group's output was a mere two EPs released between 1972 and 1973, but they're well remembered enough among collectors of small-press recordings to prompt this reissue of their catalog from the British Finders Keepers label…

Issued in 2007 on the 4AD label, THE BEST OF LISA GERRARD collects many of the finest tracks by the former Dead Can Dance vocalist/multi-instrumentalist. While the compilation includes a few tracks by that revered act, most notably the mystical "Yulunga (Spirit Dance)," a song that showcases Gerrard's striking voice, it primarily focuses on her solo work and film compositions, which both draw from music across the globe. On these pieces, Gerrard often collaborates with fellow Australian native Pieter Bourke, as on the passionate "Swans" and the expansive "Sacrifice," the latter from the INSIDER score. Although this anthology is a mere fraction of Gerrard's recorded output, it does serve as an excellent introduction to her impressive catalogue.

Kalmery's brakka style, which was born in Egypt, but grew to popularity in the 1960s and ‘70s in Zaire, swings. And Kalmery approaches his music with a joy and jauntiness that's rare, pulling strands from all styles for African music, whether it's the dry guitar sound of Kenya, the rich polyrhythms of West Africa, the density of the northern deserts, or the joyful guitar and vocals that characterize so much South African music - he's a pan-African man, the continent's equivalent of Taj Mahal.
