Lila Downs' delicious live performance tops our list this month, followed by Pan-Polynesian group Te Vaka, Malagasy singer Razia Said, the sublime sounds of sacred slide guitar from VM Bhatt & Matt Malley, and Angelique Kidjo's biographical new album. Then the Dutch trio Three Ality, the sounds of Andalusia from Al-Andalus Ensemble, pumped-up kirtan from Sean Johnson & the Wild Lotus Band, the Russian ska and stuff from Markscheider Kunst, and finally a serious bhangra-funk party album from NYC-based Red Baraat. It's a sweet and diverse list, so check out the albums if you haven't heard them yet.
