Image Dhoad Gypsies From Rajasthan
An interesting collective of Rajasthani musicians with a link to Italy, the Dhoad Gypsies switch relatively easily from what is essentially Hindustani classical to what is essentially qawwali and back to some instrumental soloing on rarer Rajasthani desert instruments in the course of but three tracks. While much of the material covered is also contained in other albums by various virtuosos, the focus on Rajasthan as something of a central location for all of it is a nice twist. Also, there's an incredible double-flute solo that you probably won't hear elsewhere. It's too bad the resident fakir and classical dancer can't be shown off in sonic form.

"Tango" began with an invitation from Yaron Gottfried, the musical director of the Israel Kibbutz Orchestra. Sometime Yasmin spent a long sleepless night trying to listen to great singers like Carlos Gardel and Roberto Polaco Goyeneche, their unique versions of the tango. As the titles were selected, a large, successful tour resulted, and fortunately it ran the recording devices. The resulting album you created (+ DVD) "Tango" is spectacular, it presents an enchanting Yasmin Levy. The captivating, soulful interpretations of her favorite tangos are perfectly framed by Gottfried's gorgeous arrangements and the great game of the Israel Kibbutz Orchestra. This is an absolutely successful combination and one that can be discovered something special in Levy's art. "In my professional life I have always been aufeiner exciting and moving journey. She led me into a musical world full of fire and passion. Tango singing has always been a characteristic of the house where I grew up. Nevertheless, it took until I got into the depth of the songs and I discovered how much I love this music really. "YASMIN LEVY

Image Tigres en Fuga
Few musical styles have been as unanimously popular in Peru as Cumbia (also known as Chicha). Planting its roots in the suburbs of Lima among the children of immigrants and in remote cities of the Amazonian jungle, its mesmerizing melodies have resonated in the Peruvian air for more than forty years. Cumbia All Stars, made up of former members of bands such as Los Mirlos, Los Diablos Rojos, Los Girasoles, Los Beta 5, Los Riberenos and Los Destellos, is a tribute to the spectacle of Peruvian Cumbia. With their bold, resonant guitar lines and jerky beats, the Cumbia All Stars majestically reinvigorate golden oldies whilst innovating new melodies that remain loyal to the origins of the music. The veteran singers and players are living legends of the music originators from the dawn of Cumbia who nursed the flame for over four decades and now have joined together with their new album Tigres en Fuga, to rapturously re-stoke the fires of the phenomenon that is Cumbia Peruana. The band made their first visit to Europe in 2013, playing 18 shows in 10 countries including a prestigious Showcase at Womex in Cardiff which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3. They return in summer 2014 to play more concerts and festivals across Europe.

Image Anda (LP)
Like an illusionist straight out of a Borges novella, Melingo is back, with his voice, his clarinet and his sense of drama. Listening to ‘Anda’ is like enjoying a Fellini film with your eyes closed, losing yourself in a display of sound designed as a suite of baroque scenes in which each piece pulsates and destabilises us. In it, the original tango is reborn, a little as if Carlos Gardel was at the centre of a form of arty neo-rock fiction, with a gallery of characters featuring Erik Satie and Serge Gainsbourg among the spectres the Argentinian actor and poet conjures forth.

Amira - vocals
Bojan Z - piano
Nenad Vasilic - double bass
Bachar Khalife - percussion

Amira Medunjanin was born in Sarajevo and sings 'Sevdah' - the distinctive Bosnian singing style best translated as 'Yearning' and similar to the Portuguese 'Duende'. Amira turns sevdah inside out, finding new contexts and forms within a tradition that is hundreds of years old.

After guesting on Mostar Sevdah Reunion's album A Secret Gate in 2003, Amira recorded her debut album, Rosa, (Snail Records, 2005), which garnered great reviews in the UK and across Europe, featuring in several "Album of the Year" lists. In 2009 Amira released the album Live, a recording of a concert held at the Jazz Fest Sarajevo in 2008. In the same year Amira released the album Zumra in collaboration with Merima Kljuco, the internationally renowned accordionist. The album represents an innovative approach to the musical tradition of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Macedonia by fusing contemporary accordion and arrangements to the traditional melody, lyrics and vocal styling.

For her new album Amira invited the Serbian pianist Bojan Z to accompany her and her band, and to arrange and produce the album. Bojan Zulfikarpasic is a revered jazz musician, especially in France where he has received numerous awards including the Chevalier de l'ordre des Arts et des Lettres. The songs on Amulette are all traditional, from Bosnia, Serbia, Macedonia and Kosovo.

Bosnia's foremost novelist Aleksandar Hemon has written the sleeve notes. To quote: "Amira has found a musical soulmate in Bojan Z who feels all of her sadness and joy and perfectly complements it on his piano, ever respectful of the silence looming beyond it all. It does not hurt at all that their choice of songs to perform together is impeccable, superbly suited to their shared tradition and sensibility--a kind of melancholy so deeply felt that it inescapably results in the pleasure of expressing it."

The Sunday Times described Amira as: "Angelic, simply angelic" and the Daily Telegraph has said: "Suicidal melancholy has rarely sounded as pretty...". fRoots magazine described Zumra as "in the ballpark for one of this year's best."

"As a naturally gifted and intuitive performer, Bojan proved to be the ideal partner for Amira's bruised and soulful singing, pushing her to probe deeper into the core of each song."

With a following to rival flamenco, the haunting melodies of Portuguese fado have always held listeners spellbound; Claudia Aurora is its powerful new voice. The singer-songwriter's debut album, "Silêncio", is the first collection of original fado songs to be recorded in the UK since the great Portuguese Fado diva Amália Rodrigues recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 1952.

On Impredecible, their fifth album, we hear the familiar languorous, loping rhythms of Peruvian cumbia, with its sonorous bass lines and intricate guitar motifs, spiced with a frisson of electronica and hooks aplenty. Impredecible is a glorious contemporary take on Peruvian cumbia - an album of richly melodious tunes and slow-burning intensity.

"En yngre generation musiker under ledning av gitarristen Girum Mezmur visar sin kärlek till föräldrars och far- och morföräldrars favoritmusik på restaurangerna och i trädgårdarna under lyktorna. De hanterar gitarrer, bas, klarinett, dragspel, mandolin, oud och traditionella slagverk, och vill komma så nära originalen som möjligt, så det är ingen modern tolkning det handlar om. Några få nummer har sång, men allra mest är det instrumentalt.Cool är bara förnamnet. Efternamnet är charm. Det är lätt att associera till Buena Vista Social Club när man hör den här nostalgiska tillbakablicken på etiopisk populärmusik från 1950- och 60-talet. Mjukt, raffinerat, akustiskt, folkligt, lättjazzigt. Men i Addis pop på den här tiden fanns tydligen också en hel del arabiska och asiatiska influenser. Det är en mycket charmig mix och allt det akustiska är som balsam i öronen. Som vanligt kan man bara önska sig att få vara med på plats. Plattan duger gott så länge. Ett litet fynd."

Image Inside This Heart Of Mine

Revered blues-jazz-R&B singer Catherine Russell's third album for World Village/Harmonia Mundi, Inside This Heart Of Mine (468092 - street date April 13, 2010), showcases the ever-deepening interpretive wiles of her ripe, honey-dipped alto, as she personifies the living heart and proud history of each of the 13 songs that make up this set. Opening with the title tune, a Fats Waller torcher that paces like a disappointed lover pulling an all-nighter, she then launches into All the Cats Join In, a sepia-tone snapshot from the heyday of 1940s swing. On Troubled Waters, she is a misunderstood but undeniably shady lady, her musky musings shadowed by a scorching muted trumpet and speaking solo piano that abet -- and perhaps contradict -- her hopes of redemption. November, a lyrical, poetic vignette, likens the dark turn of the year to loneliness and heartbreak, while a plangent banjo and rueful fiddle mark Just Because You Can, in which a man is warned to straighten out or take the consequences. Whether demanding stamina from lover (Long, Strong and Consecutive), playfully bemoaning the evils of the demon alcohol (Quiet Whiskey), or celebrating New Orleans-style swagger (Struttin' With Some Barbeque), Catherine is never less than achingly feminine, impassioned, genuine, vulnerable -- and utterly indomitable.

Argentine composer and pianist Fernando Otero found his voice as writer, musician and bandleader when, at the urging of one of his music teachers, he began to incorporate the indigenous sounds of his native Buenos Aires into his work. He was just a teenager then, but an exceptionally gifted one, a serious student of classical music with an ability to master a variety of instruments from a very young age. Otero had already begun to experiment with rudimentary home recordings and was eager to start writing on his own, though he gravitated more to a jazz idiom than a classical one. Otero liked popular music too -- often learning as much from the rock and jazz albums his older sister brought home as from his formal lessons - but he had given little thought to the gorgeous clamor around him. As he recalls, a guitar and composition instructor, Marcelo Braga Saralegui "showed me the possibility of developing something with the roots of tango, the sound of tango. Not necessarily tango itself, but the music I heard as a child, the sound in the streets. I started working with a bandoneon player and tried my first project, which I called "X Tango." Among those who taught him as an adolescent was Domingo Marafiotti resident conductor of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Teatro Colon, with whom Otero took master classes in orchestration and conducting. The South American influences he cites were all virtuosos as well as iconoclasts: Argentinian legend Piazzola, the Brazilian composer Egberto Gismonti and Uruguayan multi-instrumentalist Hugo Fattoruso. Otero has clearly focused his ambitions on his compositions, not the machinations of his career, which he has allowed to develop somewhat serendipitously. He relocated to New York City a decade ago, after brief stops in London and Madrid; Otero admits, however, that he was drawn here by a romance, not according to some master plan. He lives in a multi-ethnic Brooklyn neighborhood that has not yet experienced the gentrification happening merely blocks away. This bohemian refuge, teetering on the brink of change, more than suits him; it seems to reflect exactly where he stands as an artist. While he remained unknown to the world at large, Otero had, for some years now, been a well-kept secret among jazz and classical insiders. Otero has composed and performed with several symphonies and chamber groups in the U.S. and Mexico, and has also written for ballet and theatre companies.

Image Strictly Romancin'
Catherine Russell's fourth album for World Village, Strictly Romancin' is a paean to natural attractions: to a lover, an art form, to one's family heritage. Our faithful heroine explores love's foibles, failures, and bliss, from amorous to humorous. This acclaimed vocalist embodies the lost art of song savvy, inhabiting the lyric, and allowing each melody to shine.

Catherine Russell is that rarest of entities - a genuine jazz and blues singer - who can sing virtually anything. Her voice is full blown feminity incarnate; a dusky, stalwart and soulful instrument that radiates interpretive power yet remains touchingly vulnerable. She launches fearlessly into each tune, getting inside the melody and capturing every emotion.
