Default Vote for a FAIR club album before June 14

Every two weeks the Folk And International Roots Album Club votes for an album that they will listen to and discuss in the coming weeks.
Anyone can vote in this poll, but if you vote, please follow through and be ready to discuss whichever album wins the poll.

Newer release from a prolific English folky.
^ This first album has been in the polls for quiet a while, but it`s never attracted many votes, so I think it should be given it`s LAST CHANCE; if it doesn`t win this week, it`ll stop appearing in future polls.

Songs From a World Apart - Lévon Minassian and Armand Amar.

^ According to fazstp, MB`s very own V.M.Bhatt expert, this album is better than his more publicised collaboration with Ry Cooder, "A Meeting By The River" .

Fly,Fly, My Sadness by Huun-Huur-Tu (1996)

This starkly beautiful album is not for the faint-hearted. Uplifting and uncompromising, you have to hear it to believe it.

This week`s list ends with a new nomination from a new member. Welcome to the club, CH, and as always, many thanks to everyone who makes the effort to share their enthusiasm for FAIR music here
Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldn’t want anything else and then started looking for something else to want? It seems like we’re always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. - Susan Eloise Hinton, 1967
