Dengue Fever
Album Review
Venus on Earth
Label: M80
Genre: Cambodian Pop
Origin: USA
Format: Music CD, Import
Wiki article

The group began at least as a tribute to the playful yet heavy psychedelic pop scene that flourished in Cambodia before Pol Pot came to power and silenced countless suspected dissidents in that country's infamous killing fields in the mid-1970s. Like the Cambodian pop music that so enamored them, Dengue Fever began by revitalizing strong elements of '60s surf and garage rock in their sound. Dengue Fever now plays original, swirling, psychedelic pop.

Album Review
Niyaz
Label: Six Degrees
Genre: World Fusion
Origin: USA
Format: Music CD
Wiki article

Niyaz is an acoustic electronic project that brings together three prominent musical figures to form an exciting new fusion of traditional Persian music and modern electronics.

Vocalist and composer Azam Ali, one of the founding members of the acclaimed group Vas was born in Iran, raised in India and moved to The United State as a teenager.

Multi instrumentalist and composer Ramin (Loga) Torkian of Axiom of Choice was also born in Iran and moved to the United states as a teenager. His extensive travels combined with his in-depth understanding of Persian music and Indian culture and spirituality have enabled him to cultivate a sound that is extremely authentic, yet can lend itself to the modern framework within which the music is created.

Twice Grammy nominee producer/ remixer Carmen Rizzo is one of the most in demand producer- programmers on the electronic dance scene today. He has worked with artists ranging from Ryuichi Sakamoto, Khaled, Seal, Paul Oakenfold & Cirque Du Soleil bringing his unique approach to beats and electronic textures.

These three veteran masters have all experienced success on their own and have found a new common ground in Niyaz where the mystical poetry of Urdu and Persian Sufi poets of the 14th and 15th century forms the lyrical framework for a fresh new musical adventure.

Music CD Nine Heavens by Niyaz

Artist
Niyaz
Album Review
Nine Heavens
Label: Six Degrees
Genre: World Fusion
Origin: USA
Format: Music CD
Wiki article

"Nine Heavens" features nine intricately carved original arrangements and compositions of traditional folk songs and mystical Sufi poems from Iran, the Indian sub-continent and Turkey. With a strong emphasis on composition, Niyaz centers on the deep interconnectedness between the music of Iran, India and Turkey, and delves further into the traditional melodies of these regions with outstanding performances by its core members as well as guest musicians of the highest caliber from these three traditions.

Nine Heavens has been released as a double disc set. One cd embodies the original concept of the band which is to bridge the gap between the traditional and modern by creating a finely-tuned balance of acoustic and electronic music.

The second will be a solely acoustic version of the album, which will feature a more organic approach with a stronger emphasis on traditional acoustic instrumentation with added percussion.

Album Review
Scenes From My Life
Label: Sony
Genre: World Fusion
Origin: USA
Format: Music CD
Wiki article

Scenes From My Life is a deceptively smooth introduction to a substantial artist who might simultaneously satisfy populist and elite elements of the jazz crowd. A prodigiously self-taught youth from a remote village in West African Cameroon, Bona came to the country's capital, then to Paris, New York, and the world through the bands of proto-globo stars Harry Belafonte and Joe Zawinul.

Music CD The Seven Valleys by Stellamara
Stellamara - The Seven Valleys
Artist
Stellamara
Album Review
The Seven Valleys
Label: Hearts of Space
Genre: World Fusion
Origin: USA
Format: Music CD

Stellamara is a Bay Area band creating a world music of the imagination: filtered through eastern European refrains, spun in Persian grooves, blended in medieval modalities, and supercharged by San Franciscan world music sensibilities. All this is centered by the vocal incantations of Sonja Drakulich, who recalls singers like Vas's Azam Ali and Lumin's Irina Mikhailova. But while they sing in an imaginary supralingua, Drakulich sings real words. Much of Stellamara's music and lyrics are based on traditional melodies and sung in the original languages. It's been seven years since Stellamara's debut album, Star of the Sea, Stellamara continues their exotic fusion, like a global gypsy troupe lost in time.
