World Music Features

Hakim and Khaled
In February 2002, the first big, post-9/11 concert of North African pop music went down in New York City. Hakim, the toast of Cairo’s shaabi music, and Khaled, the king of Algerian rai, packed the Beacon Theatre. Global Rhythm was there.
By Banning Eyre

Ali Farka Touré and Toumani Diabaté
"Recording In The Heart Of The Moon was a unique experience for Ali Farka Touré and Toumani Diabaté. "It will stay with me forever," said Ali late last year. "That was the essence of this music, this complementary nature. There is no competition between us, no hate, no jealousy. You cannot be jealous of God and of what He gives.”
By Lydia Martin

Julien Jacob
Only Julien Jacob has a clue what he’s singing about. A notation on the back cover of the CD informs that Jacob “writes about inner and outer peace and his lyrics can be interpreted as you wish as they are a creation of his own imagination.”
By Jeff Tamarkin

Motion Trio
At a recent WOMEX conference in Essen, Germany, an incredible group of Polish accordionists called the Motion Trio completely rocked the place. They push their instruments to the limits, coaxing strange new sounds out of them.
By Tom Pryor

Charanga Cakewalk
Charanga Cakewalk is a smooth cocktail of Tex-Mex border music, exotica, dub and chilled-out dance music that reflects Michael Ramos’ Texan heritage.
By Tom Pryor

Brazilian Girls
With all this discussion on who Brazilian Girls are not, what about who they are? That’s a tough question. Singer Sabina Sciubba draws most attention. The rest of the band looks completely involved in its assigned role and not much more.
By David Rothenberg
