Top 10 Global Albums, October 2010

Top 10 World Music Albums – October 2010
  1. AfroCubism: AfroCubism
  2. Clay Ross: Matuto
  3. The Kora Band: Cascades
  4. Natacha Altas: Mounqaliba
  5. Peña : Pena
  6. Huun Huur Tu: Ancestors Call
  7. Mardi Gras.BB: Von Humboldt Picnic
  8. Dave Holland & Pepe Habicheula: Hands
  9. Axum: Axum
  10. Rahim Alhaj: Little Earth
New on this month's chart are the delicious Afro-Latin album AfroCubism (rocketing to #1), the Brazilian sounds of Matuto, Peruvian percussion from Peña, Tuvan folk from Huun Huur Tu, eclectic global jazz-folk from Mardi Gras.BB, and flamenco jazz from Dave Holland & Pepe Habichuela. Seems the music gets stronger as we get closer to year's end. Maybe that's a deliberate attempt to pry songs into our minds as the time nears for those best-of-2010 lists, but with great stuff like this, who's complaining? Check out any of these albums, and you won't be disappointed.
