Last post six weeks ago ?
Not that I can criticise anyone if this thread has been languishing; I've been having a bit of a rest from world music myself. But Exo's rec is excellent, especially if you like leisurely-paced instrumentals with a bunch of weird wailing instruments on top of those xylophony things that they play in (*checks youtube*) Thailand. A great album, Exo

Anyone curious enough to research the artist might want to try this alternative spelling too: Ichiro Shimoda

Breezy tunes from Brazil.
I especially dig the vocal harmonies.

Sorry all, I simply had to post it

I'm the one who should be apologising, Sir_Cactoos; instead of following on from grindy's lead, I'm jumping across to Lebanon for this song:-

That's a nice lively song, Psy-Fi! I would translate "Que pena" as "What a shame" or "How embarrassing" so it sounds like a song that is laughing about life's small misfortunes. That's a lesson we all need to be reminded of at times!

Graceland is a favourite album of mine, and that clip really brings "I know what I know" to life.

There is so much good music from Africa, and you prompted me to revisit an old favourite, the Horoya Band National:-



Where are these guys from? The country of Guinea (sometimes called Guinea-Conakry in an attempt to distinguish it from two other countries: the neighbouring Guinea-Bissau and Equitorial Guinea, which is over a thousand miles to the east).

Greetings. Nice to meet you.

Yes, well, we're talking about an entire continent of people and their music, aren't we? And when you think about its musical history... that's lifetimes of exploration. The clip is new to me. Very nice. My first instinct is to call it Bantu but I could be completely wrong. Nice starting off point in any case. Thanks!
