Segu Blue
Label: Out Here Records
Genre: Folk
Origin: Mali
Format: Music CD, Import
Wiki article

This is a gem. Bassekou Kouyaté is Mali's leading player of the ngoni, a simple desert lute that looks like a stocky cricket bat. It's West Africa's oldest string instrument and the ancestor of the banjo. One of the most gorgeous tracks is an instrumental with Toumani Diabate on kora. Laid-back music of the highest order.

Music CD Yol Bolsin by Sevara Nazarkhan

Artist
Sevara Nazarkhan
Album Review
Yol Bolsin
Label: Real World
Genre: Contemporary Folk
Origin: Uzbekistan
Format: Music CD
Wiki article

Yol Bolsin is an intriguing new export traveling west on Asia's Silk Road. The debut of 25-year-old Uzbeki singer and doutar player Sevara Nazarkhan, the album combines the rich musical tradition of her Central Asian country and fuses it with the modern sounds of noted French-Algerian producer Hector Zazou. Like much of the best stuff to come out on Real World, the combination here is timely and timeless, with Zazou's modern sounds simply providing a tasteful backing to the plucked, lutelike lines of Nazarkhan and fellow doutar player Toir Kuziyev. A pop star in Tashkent, capital of Uzbekistan, Nazarkhan has a soaring, conservatory-trained voice that conveys myriad emotions with range and an intonation enriched with deft shading.

Yulduz Usmanova
Album Review
The Best of Yulduz Usmanova
Label: Blue Flame
Genre: Contemporary Folk
Origin: Uzbekistan
Format: Music CD
Wiki article

Yulduz Usmanova is from Uzbekistan, along the fabled Silk Road trade route in Central Asia. Her singing is a fusion of intricately coded styles, which includes borrowings from Turkish and Persian rhythms and scales. She is accompanied by the tanbur (a long-necked lute) and the doira (a hand drum) but often wields a wicked backbeat and sees no reason why she should not use the latest electronic percussion and synthesizers. She is a folk singer and a club diva, a Moslem woman who wears miniskirts and was elected to her country's parliament, and an international figure who resides in a rural area outside of Tashkent.
