Top 10 World Music Albums, August 2009

A number of albums are lingering on the chart from July, though the newcomers include some great stuff. On the African front, there's Kimi Djabate's Karam, Sister Fa's Sarabah, and the rockin' collaboration Tell No Lies from Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara (who recently did some touring around the USA). And there's the Tuvtronica mix of Huun Huur Tu and Carmen Rizzo, which we recently reviewed.
