Default Vote for a FAIR album before March 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.

Five albums to choose from here :-

Beautiful album consisting of saxophone (bass, I believe) and vocals from two musicians who truly know their instrument. It goes through an amazing field of textures in so little time and the two really complement one another.

Pianoriental by Maurice El Medioni (2000)



This accomplished piano player learned his trade in the bars of Algeria during the Second World War, but it seems that he didn´t record anything until this century. So although this album has a modern date, it preserves a spirit from about 75 years ago. With a slightly dated sound and a sophisticated blend of styles, it´s easy to conjure up visions from the movie Casablanca as you listen to this virtuoso playing.

On this link, you can hear the whole album. (If that´s too much to take in all at once, take a break and go back another day; this album is a slow grower imo.)

Music of Algeria cha3bi Maurice El Medioni Maurice El Medioni Pianoriental ?????? ?????? ???? ????? ???????? ????? ????????
Thanks as always to the people who make the effort to share their enthusiasm for FAIR music here.

Now let`s get voting ....

That´s great ; a three-vote win for Frownland´s strange discovery. Has there ever been a weirder album description than "Tuvan throat singing from a Serbian jail" ? Safe to say that this is going to remain a minority genre.

So, get searching, get listening, and there´ll be a thread about Oidupaa Vladimir Oiun, on or about March 21st.
