World Music Features Yungchen Lhamo
Lhamo stands as the crowning figure of Tibetan song in the West, a pleasant surprise to a woman who had no plans to sing professionally. Later in life she was told from no less a man than the Dalai Lama that her duty was to spread Tibetan ritual music around the planet.

World Music Features Vieux Farka Touré
The connection between Mali, an expansive desert land bordering the Sahara, and America’s soulful homeland hugging the Mississippi was made long ago by blues musicians. And the blues is about jumping inside and tearing apart every organ to see how each functions, and then putting them together anew. While the head may remember scales, this music is all about heart.

World Music Features Aphrodesia
Hailing from the Bay Area, the members of Aphrodesia recently made a musical pilgrimage back to Mother Africa, eventually landing a gig at Fela's legendary Shrine nightclub. Playing Afrobeat and then some, the band has drawn on those experiences to create some bold new music, making Lagos By Bus the best album of its career.
