It's Fedor Chistyakov's band "Zero." They've put out a lot of stuff since the mid-80s in their home country.

Thanks rostasi! Extraordinary, as always, the breadth of your knowledge about music.

^ That's a beautiful track!
SM has a great voice and an impressive history; escaping from Algeria when she was branded a trouble-maker, singing in Paris before landing a UK record contract. In the space of a few years, she went from receiving death-threats in Algeria to being head-hunted in Europe, so if they ever make a film of her life, it should be pretty dramatic.
(I have a cd of her stuff, but unfortunately I don't have the tracklist or sources for it, otherwise I'd post a follow-up recommendation; she has lots of good songs.)

I'd recommend "Deb" & "Mesk Elil" from her.
You can get a video thru Wrasse Records,
but it's solely an acoustic affair if you find that kind
of thing interesting. Wrasse, by the way, is a label
you may want to pursue/peruse for more goodies.

now playing:

Mahanojaus Lietuviška Mainerių Orkestra - Storo Yono

A band of Lithuanian coal-miners.

Thanks for the recommendations. If I ever have the patience, I might cross-check them against the tracks I already have.

If I had to chose an obscure talent, I might go for Aynur Kalay. She sings traditional Kasakh folk songs with a strong voice; doesn't have a page on Wikipedia, but has quite a few clips on Youtube. They all have an exotic but cheesy look, as if she's about to be photographed for a 1950s edition of National Geographic.
