Default Vote for a FAIR album before March 30

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.

Six artists to choose from this week, two of whom are waiting to see if they´ll make it through to the next round :-

Wiki
Recently, people have been voting around, rather than for Ana Flávia and Anouar Brahem, so if it´s ok with everyone, I´m going to put them both on their LAST CHANCE week. Vote for them in this poll or it will be on your conscience when they are condemned to the outer darkness...

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.)

Glorious Romani-esque brass album... It's extremely fun and bursting at the seams with creativity and life.

Basket of Light by Pentangle (1969)



A classic of the sixties British folk revival, this album has a clean, fresh and consumately professional sound that seamlessly blends traditional songs with original compositions and arrangements.
Thanks as always to the people who make the effort to share their enthusiasm for FAIR music here.

Now let`s get voting ....

Unlike previous polls, I forgot to make this one "open to the public" , which gives a glimpse of who is voting for what. So feel free to come clean with your votes here if you like.

I myself went for Frownland´s Amulet album. Yes, I´m sorry, stp, I didn´t throw a life-line to poor old Ana Flávia or Anouar Brahem. Hope you don´t mind

Just kidding. To be honest neither the Ana Flavia or Anouar Brahem went the distance with me. They sounded promising but they both faded from grace fairly quickly after repeated listens.


I went for Cenotaph's Fanfare Ciocărlia nomination on the strength of the track he posted. I look forward to the rest of the album.

Edit: Loved it

Pentangle's been on my to-do list for quite a while so this is a good excuse to finally give them a listen.
