Music reviews

The album, sung in Hebrew and Portuguese, is centered on original and well-crafted songs that echo the essence of Brazilian and Middle Eastern musical stylings.
A denizen of the Nazareth region, Hayek transforms the music of the Middle East with a hint of European and Western influences.
A splendid mix of music for those interested in the traditional sounds of the UK.
14 elephants playing a variety of drums, gongs, rattles, balafons (a West African percussion instrument) and other assorted instruments.
The seven long tracks on this album feature Khyam on the oud, unaccompanied by any vocals.
The stirring sounds of Balkan brass, Ethiopian melodies and Middle Eastern rhythms make up the globally influenced album Al Wa’ Debt.
Carnatic music with a modern twist, an absence of vocals allows the Veena to shine with every pick and pluck.
A singer for more than 30 years, Norway’s Kari Bremnes releases the latest two-CD collection of her best work to date.
Čači Vorba offers a fusion of Balkan, Gypsy, Polish and Ukrainian tunes mixed with wedding music and folk dance music from Romania, Moldova, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Turkey, and Albania.
Algeria’s Amazigh Kateb is a modern ambassador for trance-inducing Gnawa grooves.
The Mayapuris is a U.S.-based kirtan music group that performs Sanskrit call-and-response chanting originating from West Bengal, India.
 Angelique sings mostly in Beninese languages, but Oyo is essentially a masterpiece of global pop after more than 20 years in the music industry.
