World Music Features

Maha Akhtar
Maha Akhtar will never forget October 28, 2005. On that date, the woman who has been studying and performing the khatak dance of her native India since the age of six discovered she is the granddaughter of Anita Delgado, legendary flamenco dancer from Malaga who was wooed at 17 and then whisked off to India by the maharajah of Kapurthala, where she lived in opulence and scandal.
By Carol Amoruso

Marcia Griffiths
After 43 years of singing sweet, sweet songs, the empress of reggae has officially received her crown. VP Records is set to release Melody Life, the first Marcia Griffiths anthology, covering her musical career from its beginnings at Studio One, her 10 years as part of Bob Marley’s legendary I-Threes, and her continually evolving solo work.

Vieux Farka Touré
The connection between Mali, an expansive desert land bordering the Sahara, and America’s soulful homeland hugging the Mississippi was made long ago by blues musicians. And the blues is about jumping inside and tearing apart every organ to see how each functions, and then putting them together anew. While the head may remember scales, this music is all about heart.
By Derek Beres

Bonde Do Role
Bonde do Role’s sound is funk-inspired, though their sonic pastiche is a mutation of proper funk carioca. The trio blatantly sample retro American pop and metal, plunging the guitar riffs into an already kitschy mix of Miami-bass beats, samba drum-loops and relentless, tongue-in-cheek, raunchy rapping.
By Lissette Corsa

Evan Ziporyn
“The present-day composer refuses to die,” said Edgar Varèse. It’s a quote that famously inspired Frank Zappa, and it’s equally applicable to the work of Evan Ziporyn, a clarinetist, classical composer, and leader of his own Balinese gamelan group, Gamelan Galak Tika.

Luciano
Reggae can sometimes be filled with spiritual filigree—songs showered with praises and inflated proclamations to Jah until they lose their meaning, and Luciano’s newest album Child of a King is no different—except that his exclamations are so sincere they’ll have you questioning your own devotion.
