World Music Legends R. Carlos Nakai
Like many of his peers, R. Carlos Nakai holds a deep respect for the venerable Native flute tradition but doesn’t so much aim to preserve it as pay homage to it. His music is at once reverent of the past and defiant of it.

World Music Features Yoko Ono

One of the most controversial women of the past four decades, Yoko Ono is many things to many people: avant-garde artist, tireless campaigner for peace, successful businesswoman and—of course—the widow of slain Beatle John Lennon.

Carla Bruni

World Music Features Carla Bruni
Carla Bruni released one of 2004’s most heavenly, refreshingly unadorned albums in Quelqu’un M’a Dit (Somebody Told Me). Clearly, Bruni is a big deal on her way to becoming an even bigger deal. Her understated, largely acoustic voicings of mostly self-penned material bring to mind that other icon of breathy French femme-pop, Françoise Hardy.

Only Julien Jacob has a clue what he’s singing about. A notation on the back cover of the CD informs that Jacob “writes about inner and outer peace and his lyrics can be interpreted as you wish as they are a creation of his own imagination.”
