World Music Features

CSS
Before becoming the first South American band signed to American indie music institution Sub Pop Records, even before the sharp-eared Brazilian label Trama released their record at home, Cansei De Ser Sexy (Tired Of Being Sexy)—known to fans worldwide via the acronym CSS—already had a devoted following.
By Lissette Corsa

Idan Raichel
The power of Raichel’s music lies in its combination of ancient and modern, reminiscent of Moby’s looping of crackly blues and gospel 78s on his album Play. Traditional instruments are heard alongside guitars and electronics, and some of the voices, singing in ancient languages, are live, but others are sampled.
By Phil Freeman

Gal Costa
It’s hard to believe, given her youthful looks and crystal-clear voice, that Gal Costa has been performing for more than 40 years—a career that’s still going strong began when she befriended Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil in the early ’60s in Bahia.
By Ernest Barteldes

Belinda Carlisle
Carlisle’s voice has deepened, and coarsened, over the years; she’s not in Marianne Faithfull territory yet, but there’s a lived-in feel to her vocals that makes the sentiments she’s expressing in songs like “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” “La Vie En Rose” and “Sous Le Ciel De Paris” even more universal.
By Phil Freeman

Slavic Soul Party
Here’s a band that likes to see and hear different cultures and musics bump up against each other. Hailing from all over the U.S. as well as Japan, Slavic Soul Party celebrates Balkan music, second line grooves, articulate jazz-informed solos and other bits and pieces.
By Tad Hendrickson

Richie Spice
Born Richell Bonner in St. Andrew in 1971, Spice has been aggressively pursuing his musical career since 1994, and has wowed critics with a distinctive singing voice teetering toward pop-friendliness.
By Matt Scheiner
