World Music Top 10, October 2009

The marvelous Georgian group The Shin has rocketed to the top of the charts this month with their new Gypsy-flavored album Black Sea Fire. (A review of the album is forthcoming.) Also new we have more Gypsy music from Mahala Rai Banda, a mixed bag of funk and South African music from Christin Vainderlis, and Finland meets Nigeria in the music of Jimi Tenor and Tony Allen. Shantel rounds out the top five, and the other five albums are no slouches, so check them all out.
