World Music Features Belinda Carlisle
Carlisle’s voice has deepened, and coarsened, over the years; she’s not in Marianne Faithfull territory yet, but there’s a lived-in feel to her vocals that makes the sentiments she’s expressing in songs like “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” “La Vie En Rose” and “Sous Le Ciel De Paris” even more universal.

World Music Features Idan Raichel
The power of Raichel’s music lies in its combination of ancient and modern, reminiscent of Moby’s looping of crackly blues and gospel 78s on his album Play. Traditional instruments are heard alongside guitars and electronics, and some of the voices, singing in ancient languages, are live, but others are sampled.

World Music Features Cruachan
Like folk music, metal is the life-soundtrack of a tightly knit community, so it’s not surprising that metal bands in various countries have lately been blending the amp-frying guitars and thunderous drums of their genre with the native traditional sounds their parents and grandparents heard and played. The Irish band Cruachan has been doing this for some time The Morrigan’s Call is its fourth, and most accomplished album.
