Sound Of The World
Wrasse Wrass
By Paul-Emile Comeau

Published June 27, 2006

Every fall, the people of the Western world, well, a few of them anyway, have come to rely on a couple of yearly dispatches to help steer them through another year: the latest edition of the Old Farmer’s Almanac and a new compilation from Charlie Gillett. The BBC DJ’s compilations may not yet be a long-standing tradition but his devotees hope that it will become one. Sound of the World, named after Gillett’s weekly radio show, is another impressive double CD containing some of the best music to have come out since last year’s compilation. The 33 artists from 28 countries or so include a few stars, such as Youssou N’Dour, Manu Chao, Mariza, Lhasa and Oliver Mtukudzi. The thrill, however, is in discovering so many new names that deserve to become more widely known. Some of these have recently had high-profile recordings released in North America (Daby Balde, Shukar Collective) but many of them, possibly including Camille from France, rapper Clotaire K from Lebanon, and Ivan Kupala from Russia, are bound to be exciting for many music fans.
