Top 10 World Music Albums, September 2009

Had this month's chart done some days ago, and just realized that I was running out of time in the month to post it. So just in the nick of time, here's what's new in global music for September. New on the charts are the latest offering by neo-forro masters Forro in the Dark, Indian-fusion singer Kailash Kher, instrumental maestros Les Triaboliques, and the village artists behind the wonderful audio-video Laya Project. More reviews coming, but in the meantime check out these albums for some wonderful, diverse sounds.
