Good video, thanks Jack - a youngster performing (and wearing) their own culture very well and, as you say, having fun.

Nice - I'll post some more stuff tomorrow but for now here is the sublime Olcay Bayir who I discovered at Musicport a few years ago

Thank you Jack for starting this thread..I have recently, via you tube, been listening to lot of Arabic music and I love it? I am not at all well versed in its history, influences or origins, but would like to know much more. I am also listening to a lot of Eastern European music and would love some suggestions.
Surely there must be written histories of these rich traditions. I would love to hear and read more.
   I play in a small local music group and there are two young Egyptian musicians who sometimes join us. They play hammered dulcimer like instruments..very lovely..but language keeps us from communicating many things. one of them has taken up the bagpipe, now ain,t ,t that grand?

This looks like it'll be great - touring the UK next month. I'll be at the Edinburgh one.

Reference on Arabic music: your best bet is the very recent book by Johnny Farraj and Sami Abu Shumays, "Inside Arabic Music" (Oxford University Press). Packs a phenomenal amount in. It's based on a very long established website, so the content has been thoroughly pre-user-tested.

My first contribution will be a video of a track from the album that I consider to be by some distance the best album released so far this century, Kiriké by the great Malian jali Kassé Mady Diabaté. This is the traditional Manding song Simbo.
For those without the Mandinka, can I say that the song is placed in the mouth of a hunter who is considering the attitude of his dog whose devotion to him is total, in fact it is comparable to the singer's devotion to Allah. Kassé Mady then follows the tradition by breaking off from the song to improvise praises - in this case to his fellow musicians.
To my ears this is musical perfection.

"someone's having fun"
Brilliant - beats Cohaltas bodhrans hands down
A thought
Some time ago CJB made available Bert Lloyd's 13 part series, 'Voice of the People' an excellent themed series on world music (you'll never forget the African tribal women singing their paean to American Country Singer 'Mister Jimmie Rodger")
If people missed that, or any of the many programmes Bert made on international music, particularly Eastern European, I'm happy to mae them available again

That's fabulous music Vic. Thanks for sharing. I have been listening, on you tube, to group called Faran Ensemble, think they are great. however, I can find out little about them. they have released two albums but I can find no way to purchase them. Has anyone else heard of them ?

In the next few weeks I will be presenting a couple of two-hour programmes on Rocket FM with music from five continents during the four hours. In addition, I will be presenting a separate couple of two hour Folk Music programmes. Personally, I cannot see the difference and do not subscribe to an attitude sometimes found on the folk scene that "Folk music stops at Dover". However, I will have to divide it in the way the station has asked me to.

I will be posting the playlists here in advance of every programme along with the web address of how to listen to these programmes on-line for those outside my area.

That is great Vic,I look forward to it.
I have found over the years that many people are drawn to the music of other culture by listening to "western" artists who are drawn to world Music..Paul Simons album Graceland and Johnny Clegg with Juluka certainly heightened many peoples awareness of African music. I used to listen to Lorena McKennit and as a result became interested in Moorish music in Spain. Kate Bush, in the eighties, had Trio Bulkarka on two of her albums. I have an old lp from the eighties (I think) where Ashwin Batish , the sitar Player ,plays some pop, rock and country..I loved his version of White Lightning. The fusion of musical styles and traditions is amazing, isn't it ?

Many thanks mudcat mates for this thread...

My minds too disorganised to cope with specifics like remembreing names right right now..

But a turning point in my life was being a student in my early 20s in Bristol.
Not only was the live gig and dance club scene extrememly eclectic and internationalist;
but it was just at the time that WOMAD emerged
and presented it's first big scale festival in Shepton Mallet...

[and WOMAD fest had proper permanent toilet and shower blocks... bliss.. luxuury...]

That's what made me what I am now...

Oh.. and let's never forget the influence of the late night John Peel radio show...

In case anyone here isn't aware the excellent Music Planet on Radio 3 is a great place to discover music from across the world - unfortunately it has over a period of time shrunk from 2 hours on a Friday night to its now one hour slot on a Saturday afternoon at 4pm.

Another of my favourite bands who I finally got to see last year at Warwick Folk Festival - amazing box player!
