Artist
Bassekou Kouyate with Ngoni ba
Album Review
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.

Kaya
Label: Island
Genre: Reggae

`Kaya' is a great follow up to the all time classic `Exodus'. Once again Marleys vocals and lyrics are on point, and the crew bring a great collection of riffs and grooves. Like `Exodus' there's a lot of classic Wailers standards here, `Is This Love', `Sun Is Shining', `Satisfy My Soul', beautiful music.

Selwa
Label: Six Degrees
Genre: Electronica
Origin: Tibet
Format: Music CD
Wiki article
Minnesota-born guitarist Steve Tibbetts and Chöying Drolma, a sweet-faced, crop-haired Tibetan nun have created another series of placid sonic journeys, wherein Drolma's nasal yet pristine alto-to-mezzo soars amid a restrained blend of guitar, electronica, drones, and overdubbed voices. The album leaves a strangely energetic peacefulness in its wake.

Music CD Cansei de Ser Sexy by CSS
CSS - Cansei de Ser Sexy
Artist
CSS
Album Review
Cansei de Ser Sexy
Label: Sub Pop
Genre: Rock
Origin: Brazil
Format: Music CD, Import
Wiki article
From Brazil, CSS is the first South American band Sub Pop has foisted upon the global marketplace. The title is Portuguese for "Tired Of Being Sexy" and the sound is a thick, pulsating thing full of haphazard synths and a come-on of call and response that tears down any attempt at posturing. It's equal parts rock mantra and throwback into something new, transcending boundaries of genre and geography. It goes full speed into dance territory, into the unknown and untouched, to emerge all hot and bothered with wild electro-rock. Quick, tightly-wound, unfastened, and supreme.
