SoundRoots / Spin The Globe’s Top 10 World Music Albums – September 2011
  1. Boban & Marko Marcovic Orchestra vs. Fanfare Ciocarlia: Balkan Brass Battle
  2. Sally Nyolo: La nuit à Fébé
  3. Te Vaka: Havili
  4. Nation Beat: Growing Stone

  10. A Moving Sound: A Moving Sound
Quite a few new names on the chart this month, under the rare #1 repeat of the wonderful Marcovic/Ciocarlia brass off. Cameroon's Sally Nyolo has a new album full of vocal & rhythmic wonder; Ta Vaka's new CD is both very rooted and very modern, and Tinariwen gets a little mellower. Other newcomers: Vagabond Opera's uncategorizable flights of fancy, Heyraneh's rich Persian melodies, and A Moving Sound brings a new look at Chinese music via Taiwan. Watch for review of many of these new albums soon here on SoundRoots.

Be sure to listen for cuts from all of these albums on Spin The Globe this Friday, 16 September, via broadcast at 89.3 FM, via live stream at www.KAOSradio.org, or later via podcast
