World Music Features

Abdul Bockarie
While Bockarie had always been influenced by the message and lyrics of reggae, he didn’t start singing it until he went to Jamaica, and up until then his only musical experience was singing karaoke in Africa. But he believes the link between Africa and Jamaica is unbreakable. 
By Matt Scheiner

Hendrik Meurkens
German vibes and harmonica master Hendrik Meurkens emerged on the New York jazz scene in the early 1990s, and has recorded with Monty Alexander, Charlie Byrd, Jimmy Cobb, Ivan Lins and Claudio Roditi, among others.

Ricky Skaggs
Ricky Skaggs doesn’t have a damn thing to prove to any listener at this point, which frees him up to have fun, and he’s clearly doing so on the album Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby. This collaboration with pianist/singer-songwriter Bruce Hornsby is a rollicking, joyful affair that plays like a particularly well-recorded jam session.

Laibach
Laibach are an art project disguised as political satire disguised as a band. They started out in Yugoslavia, back when there still was a Yugoslavia, taking on their repressive leaders by pretending to be even more hardcore than the government.

Yabby You
Yabby You (aka Vivian Jackson), the hitmaker and producer known for his 1972 single “Conquering Lion” speaks in warbled patois from his Jamaican homeland, adding to the musician’s wizened mystique. Despite his physical pitfalls, he’s still able to perform three to four times a year.

Andy Palacio
Guitarist and singer Andy Palacio, from Belize, formed the Garifuna Collective with the goal of bringing the music of this unique, West African-meets-Caribbean culture to broader attention. Andy provides insight into the Collective and Garifuna music in this interview with Phil Freeman.
