The 3rd Best of World, another ethnic BoBW compilationWhat exactly is world music, I ask myself. Songs from my own country may not be foreign or ethnic to me, but they may be to you. And music from the other side of the world is probably very exotic to Europeans, but what if you live in that corner of the world?
So here are sixteen songs from all over the world. One of them is Dutch but sounds meditterranean ("Bossa Dorado" by The Rosenberg Trio), and one is Belgian but sounds oriental ("Louxor In Vegas" by Dan Lacksman).
My favorites are "Nahin Jeena" by Rishi Rich (sounds Indian but is British) and "Arash" by Arash (sounds as from the Middle East but is Swedish).
Do pay special attention to "Coumba" by the Senegalese Orchestre Baobab and "Le Défi" by the Algerian Djur Djura...
Enjoy the music, and have a nice weekend...
