World Music Features

Yungchen Lhamo
Lhamo stands as the crowning figure of Tibetan song in the West, a pleasant surprise to a woman who had no plans to sing professionally. Later in life she was told from no less a man than the Dalai Lama that her duty was to spread Tibetan ritual music around the planet.
By Derek Beres

Gigi
Ejigayehu “Gigi” Shibabaw has become America’s most prominent representative of Ethiopian roots music. Since the beginning of her career, she’s been evolving the numerous and varied styles of her birthplace, which includes a broad cornucopia of Christian, Muslim and tribal influences.
By Derek Beres

Salif Keita
Mali’s greatest popular singer, Salif Keita, has come home to Africa. When he moved to France in the late 1970s, Keita was fed up with conservative attitudes forbidding Mande nobles like him to become musicians, and also with corrupt government officials, inferior recording studios, and all the other limitations faced by aspiring musicians in Africa at the time.
By Banning Eyre

Ali Farka Touré
The world mourned the passing of a musical legend on March 7th, 2006, when Ali Farka Touré died of bone cancer. The charming and thoughtful guitar player introduced the world to Malian music. He was a staunch traditionalist, and paved the way for other Malian musicians to retain their musical roots.
By Lydia Martin

Gustavo Santaolalla
Gustavo Santaolalla has taken the Hollywood music-scoring industry by storm over the past two years. He took home an Academy Award (“Best Original Score”) in 2006 for his work on Brokeback Mountain, and another in 2007 for Alejandro Iñárritu’s Babel, amongst others such as the BAFTA, Latin Grammy, and Grammy awards.
By Phil Freeman

Dhafer Youssef
Dhafer Youssef is a musician who has created a unique, spiritual sound, combining exquisite oud melodies with extraordinary, unearthly vocals. On his fourth album, Divine Shadows, the Tunisian musician’s sound is further enhanced by his long-term collaborators, who are among the boldest, most accomplished players in the Norwegian jazz scene.
