Boris Kovac is one of a handful of modern composers and performers from the region of Hungary, Bulgaria, and Yugoslavia whose names reached Western Europe and America. Strongly influenced by folk music from that region (a fascination he shares with István Mártha and Ernö Király), minimalism, Bela Bartok, and the philosophy of Bela Hamvas (also influential on Hungarian composer Tibor Szemzö), Kovac's music takes multiple forms...
Boris Kovac & La Campanella
My Eastern Heart (Boris Kovac) 8:09
Fly By... (Boris Kovac) 5:55
Pannonian Blues (Boris Kovac) 5:29
from Eastern Moon Rising 2014
In the half-light of an Eastern Moon Rising, Boris Kovač welcomes you with a beating jazz heart to a place where the East and West converge, freeing the musical soul to roam.
Decked out in ‘Blues Brothers’ shades and a shocking pink suit Boris Kovač holds his saxophone tight to his chest and cuts an elusive figure on stage. Creeping, crawling melodies emanate from the bell of his instrument, his shape-shifting horn side-winding in parallel with bandmate Goran’s gymnastic accordion lines. A light jazz touch on the drums in tandem with resonant double bass and guitar voicing propels each tune along.
Boris was born in Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia, which lies nestled in the crook of the River Danube’s S-shaped meander. His work as a back-bendingly flexible artist has seen him take to the stage as composer, instrumentalist, multimedia artist and theatre collaborator.
Boris’ music is post-futuristic – it eschews genre and plays on clichéd expectations with its overblown drama and melancholy. As we kneel to worship at Boris’ Eastern Moon Rising, the ultimate Balkan entertainer blazes on high once again.

Daniel Melingo (b. Buenos Aires, 1957) is an Argentine multi-instrumentalist, singer, and composer. A ubiquitous presence in the Argentine rock scene of the 1980s, by the turn of the century he had managed to reinvent himself as a tango artist and launch a successful new career in the European world music circuit...
La Cancion Del Linyera (Ivo Pelay) 5:08
Despues De Pasar (Federico García Lorca) 2:47
Soneto Para Daniel Reguera (Atahualpa Yupanqui) 5:13
from Linyera 2014
Buenos Aires star's inventive take on tango
Daniel Melingo is one of the quirky celebrities of the Buenos Aires tango scene. He's a singer and actor with a gruff voice and a stage persona that veers between Charlie Chaplin and Tom Waits. But he's also an impressive multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, keyboards and clarinet, and has set out to provide new and often experimental settings for Argentina's most celebrated dance style. As ever, he sings about his city's lowlife, and uses the persona of a linyera (a vagabond) as the starting point for his unusual and sophisticated songs...

Alsarah & The Nubatones is a Brooklyn, NY, USA Nubian worlbeat band, with members: Alsarah (vocals), Karine Fleurima (vocals and keys), Haig Manoukian (oud), Rami El Aasser (percussion) and Mawuena Kodjovi (bass). They came together out of a collective love for Nubian music and a genuine belief that Soul transcends all cultural and linguistic barriers. Inspired by the pentatonic scale they blend a selection of Nubian 'songs of return' from the 1970s-today with original material and traditional music of central Sudan. Their set is a musical journey through diaspora and migration from an urban lense.

Sudanese soul sister sings songs of return
While US-based Sudanese singer Alsarah appeared on our radar last year with her work as part of the Nile Project, as well as her duo album with French producer Débruit, Silt is her debut with her own band, The Nubatones. Both of those previous projects drew on themes of migration and displacement, and these are the major themes here too. Silt has its musical roots in the Nubian ‘songs of return’ in particular, which started appearing in 1970 after thousands of Nubians were displaced by flooding from the Aswan Dam. The songs voice a longing and nostalgia for home or place, much like the idea of saudade in fado...

Born in Bamako, Mali, and raised in the Bambara tradition of oral history and music, Mamani Keita started singing at a young age with her maternal grandmother. During the 1970s, Mamani was an active participant in Bamako's cultural scene with the Oulofobougou theatre company and the Bamako Biennale, among other things. In the early 80s she joined the Bamako Orchestra, then the Badema, the National Malian Orchestra.

from Kanou 2014
...The reduction in satire, if it exists, is a language-borne sign of her return to an unambiguously Mandinka area of music. The sharpest arrows of her own voice are partnered and reflected by a battery of West African strings: guitar strings, kora strings, and ngoni strings. The guitarist has been borrowed from the Super Rail Band, so he knows something about propelling a tune. But it interests me when I notice that she has decided not to use the slow burn that she must have heard so often in the tradition of pop music that she's borrowing from, the patient tumbling sound that made such an indelible impression on a musician like Salif Keita..

Auto Das Bacantes 3:11
Beijo No Asfalto 2:40
from Ava Patrya Yndia Yracema 2015
...The trippy atmosphere  extends to the music. Gentle tribal drumming introduces the opener “Boca do Céu,” followed by mantra-like vocals reciting poetic lines. The tempo slows down even further, strings come in, then suddenly we get a psychedelic bossa nova rave-up that’s somewhere between Os Mutantes and Stereolab, before circling back to the drums and vocals that started it all...

 A Mexican-American Laurie Anderson or if Frida Kahlo were a musician instead of a visual artist.  / Singer Lila Downs grew up with the culture of her father, a professor from the United States, but eventually turned her back on it to explore the tradition of her mother, a Mixteca Indian from Mexico. In doing so, she has created a very individual strain of song that has indigenous Mexican roots and North American sonorities.

Inmortal (Paul Cohen / Lila Downs) 3:40
Envidia feat: Andrés Calamaro (Paul Cohen / Lila Downs) 3:49
from Salon, Lagrimas y Deseo 2017
On 2015's Latin Grammy-winning Balas y Chocolat, Lila Downs delivered an album of folk songs and originals that juxtaposed modern Mexico with its rich history. It songs highlighted the impact of the drug war, environmental devastation, and the widening rift between economic classes in Mexico. Downs believes an artist's role is not only to create but to be an activist. Salon, Lagrimas y Deseo is in many ways an extension of Balas y Chocolat, though its emphasis is different. Here Downs employs classic and original songs to deliver a feminist manifesto with forms ranging from cumbia to danzon, rancheras to blues, son to banda and conjunto...

Ceaseless touring and strong albums helped this large group grow to be one of the frontrunners of 2010's West African guitar music.

Trankil 4:44
from Tantabara 2018
Since breaking out internationally with 2013's Kaani, West African powerhouse Tal National have honed their unclassifiable multi-ethnic guitar rock to a razor-sharp edge. Based out of Niamey, Niger, they emit an infectious energy and blazing musicianship, combining elements of desert and songhai blues, highlife, and Afrobeat, which they deliver with an almost punk-like ferocity...

A duo comprised of renowned Cretan lutist George Xylouris and Dirty Three drummer Jim White. / Xylouris White is a duo comprised of Cretan longnecked lute (laouto) player Giorgis Xylouris and Dirty Three drummer Jim White. The pair met while Xylouris was living in Melbourne and they stayed in touch. They got their first chance to play together at the Nick Cave-curated ATP Festival backing the laouto player's famous father Psarantonis, a nationally beloved singer and lyra player.

Lullaby (Traditional) 4:12
from Mother 2018
On Mother, their third long-player, the duo of Cretan lutist George Xylouris and drummer Jim White find the space between the arid exploration of 2014's Goats and the intense, swirling ascendancy of 2016's Black Peak. By turns, Mother is a more spacious album than either of its predecessors. Produced by Guy Picciotto (Fugazi), these nine tracks more carefully examine song forms, utilize the grainy physicality of Xylouris' voice, explore the seam where drones and conventional Cretan and Greek melodies are born, and interact with one another in conversational tones of varying passionate emotion...

Paris-based Cuban duo of twin sisters Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Dia who play an electro-tinged variety of Afro-Cuban and soul-influenced music. 
I Carried This for Years (Lisa Kainde Diaz / Philip Kutev / Mariyka Va Kuteva) 1:34
No Man Is Big Enough for My Arms (Maya Dagnino / Lisa Kainde Diaz / Bruce Gray / Bruce Hawes) 2:26
Me Voy feat: Mala Rodríguez (Lisa Kainde Diaz / Mala Rodríguez) 3:07
Ash (Lisa Kainde Diaz) 3:47
from Ash 2017
Ibeyi's stellar self-titled debut album was a flashpoint that steeped itself in brittle electro-drenched R&B and roots Yoruban percussion and openly engaged the saints of Santeria: its introduction was an invocation to Elegua (the gatekeeper between worlds) and the goddess of wind and storms in "Oya." On the French/Cuban sibling duo's sophomore effort, Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz address matters more corporeal and rooted in lived experience. The spiritual here is an inspirational tool for understanding and confronting suffering and injustice. Ash is an album directly affected by the tension of the times. Its songs address female empowerment, racial injustice, loneliness, and love in a brittle yet warm mix less frenetic than its predecessor. Singing again in mixed French, English, and Yoruba...
