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.

Lithuanian coal miners? Say no more!!

The last several videos posted are all new to me.

I don't have many to offer today, but here is a folksy TV On The Radio cover:


I'm also fond of Bulgarian music lately:

Okay, so I'm having trouble finding folk recs on the internet that aren't infested with folk rock and indie folk, so if I just wanted a top 10 of folk albums to check out for a beginner then what should I listen to? I'm cool with folk rock albums being included, but **** off with indie folk.

  1. Various ‎– Mountain Music Of Kentucky
  2. Mississippi John Hurt ‎– Avalon Blues: The Complete 1928 Okeh Recordings (Country Blues, Folk, etc. etc.)
  3. Roscoe Holcomb‎ – The High Lonesome Sound
  4. Erik Darling ‎– Instrumental Music And Songs Of The Southern Appalachians
  5. The Kingston Trio ‎– The Kingston Trio
  6. Patrick Sky ‎– Patrick Sky
  7. The Byrds ‎– ‎The Byrds Play Dylan
  8. Leo Kottke ‎– Six n Twelve String (Primitive American instrumental)
  9. Sibylle Baier - Color Green
  10. Kate Wolf ‎– Close to You

I chose "The Byrds Play Dylan" to kill two birds with one stone (no pun intended) I wanted to combine two recs into one. Roscoe Holcomb‎ is on the Mountain Music of Kentucky, still I wanted to give him another mention cause he was an influence on Bob Dylan. I no idea how popular or not Pratick Sky, Sibylle Baier and Kate Wolf are. They appeal to my quiet and retiring side.
