Indonesia – Gamelan: From Palace To Paddy Field – World Music Network – Guide To World Music Indonesia – Gamelan: From Palace To Paddy Field – World Music Network – Guide To World Music The shimmering sounds of the gamelan have fascinated and delighted Western visitors to Indonesia for half a millennium. The structural complexity of the music and its sonorous and ethereal sound have inspired twentieth-century composers such as Debussy, Britten and John Cage, and in recent years there’s been an enthusiastic growth in playing in gamelan ensembles in the West. A gamelan has been described as “one instrument played by many people”. It is essentially an ensemble of tuned percussion, consisting mainly of gongs, metallophones (similar to xylophones, but with metal instead of wooden bars) and drums; it may also include singers, bamboo flutes and spike-fiddle.

Asmahan - Les Archives De La Musique Arabe أسمهان Amal al-Atrash (Arabic: آمال الأطرش‎)...better known by her stage name Asmahan (أسمهان Asmahān), was a Syrian singer and actress. Having immigrated to Egypt in childhood, her family knew the composer Dawood Hosni, and she sang the compositions of Mohamed El Qasabgi and Zakariyya Ahmad. She also sang the compositions of Mohammed Abdel Wahab and her brother Farid al-Atrash, a then rising star musician in his own right. Hers was the only voice in Arab music to ever pose a serious competition to that of Umm Kulthum,who is considered to be the Arab world's most distinguished singer of the 20th century. Her mysterious death in an automobile accident shocked the public. Journalists spread gossip about her turbulent personal life and an alleged espionage role in World War II.

Creator Q&A: Silk Road in Stereo » The Kickstarter Blog Play We've been ogling over Kara Van Malssen's Silk Road audio project for a while now, so it's about time we interrogated this internationally recognized sound archivist once and for all. If you haven't heard, Kara and her team of adventurers will be driving from the UK to Mongolia this summer as part of the Mongol Rally, and she'll be collecting sounds from every country in their path that she'll then curate into a series of audio pieces.

Ravid Kahalani - Yemen Blues / a RootsWorld review of World Music Ravid Kahalani - Yemen Blues / a RootsWorld review of World Music Ravid Kahalani Yemen Blues LGM/Global Lev In an interview for PRI’s The World, Yemen Blues spearhead Ravid Kahalani, an Israeli whose parents migrated from Yemen, explains the influence of Skip James, Blind Lemon Jefferson and others on his music, though you certainly wouldn’t necessarily know it from this disc. And that’s really a good thing, as the once avant-garde, highly individual, acoustic, early twentieth century song form has been rendered horribly clichéd by overuse. Instead, the term “blues” on this disc, which contains 10 tracks of seemingly baffling origin, refers to another folk form, Yemeni Jewish traditional music, which Kahalani draws from directly. Oh, but then there is that rising and falling element to the 7/8 “Um Min Al Yaman,” slightly suggesting the 12 bar blues format, but only if you’re really looking for such a thing. One could also certainly be forgiven for thinking it all sounds simply “Arabic,” whatever that means.

A few years ago while eating a taco I first heard the magnificent sound of brass band music from the Mexican state of Sinaloa. Immediately I bought a bunch of CDs and videos. Living on the edge of the Mexican part of sunset park, I was sure that I could find some of this music performed live, just like it is in Chicago and LA. I searched the colorful night club posters up and down fifth avenue. Although I understood no Spanish one thing was clear: none of the bands pictured had enough players to form a genuine acoustic Banda: 14! There is no banda in NYC! Banda Sinaloense de los Muertos
“It doesn’t matter where you come from, your language is my language. It doesn’t matter to which God you are praying, because the melody always comes from the heart.” Speaking via phone from Israel, Ravid Kahalani is describing with a quiet intensity what he seeks to share with Yemen Blues, a super group of nine musicians – many of them stars in their own right -, which he co-founded with acclaimed bassist/oud player Omer Avital. The artful and organically blended mélange of traditional Yemeni Jewish songs, Saharan blues, avant-garde chamber music and various percussion genres (even Latin) that characterizes Yemen Blues also reflects Kahalani’s own musical journey, which began with childhood experiences within traditional Yemenite and Jewish liturgical music.
