  • post your recent ethnic finds...

    don't even know if "ethnic" is the right term for this kind of music.
    don't like the term "worldmusic" and fieldrecordings would probably be wrong....

    anyway....

    picked these up last week and am much in love with them by now.

    one wonderful arabian percussion led stomper:


    and one beautiful and very very light melody one


    edit: is there a way to insert divshare files?

    El Al Songs of Israel - Inflight entertainment from El Al israeli Airlines.
    Ben mentioned here before and has 2 interesting folk songs with heavy backing. Sorry, no soundclip.





    And came across this googling "el al" .....

      Here are a few recent Japanese bits and bobs.

      Zen Buddhist box set




      Summertime in Japan (water clocks, insects etc)




      ancient stone flute




      Similarly ancient bronze bells. These were dug up in royal tombs and this recording is an attempt
      to figure out how they were played (sounds like gamelan in places)




      Hokkaido (northernmost island in Japan) folk songs




      Takahashi Chikusan - Tsugaru Shamisen




      These last three are all 10" Nagauta recitals, kabuki-style vocal with sparse accompaniment

        I'm not sure I'd file it under "ethnic" but I love the lo-fi rabbinical beat with drums.
        Mixes, compilations and the like

          I like that second one - what is it?

          I had a different one by Mohamed Jerrari with huge drums but I foolishly traded it to someone on here and have regretted it ever since.

              I seem to remember this being a winner


              The "Summertime in Japan (water clocks, insects etc)" looks interesting from a chill-out presepective...

                    Is there not an instruction which says, "out of season please listen to in steam bath" (no emotocon for steaming )

                      This is great! Don't be put off by the "recorded in London" bit.
                      I think you've got one of a two volume set there, btw.

                        Sick looking Japanese stuff I*in!

                        I have a lot of recent stuff, but no camera within reach. I may make a reappearance in this thread.

                          Not put off, just not found time! Seem to have about a 10 minute gap between toddler's bedtime, finishing housework, etc and falling asleep. Outfit in the bottom right corner is amazing - hope he has a 'theme song' on it.

                          Will go back to see if Pt 2 has been put out in the racks amongst the Skynyrd back cat priced at a fiver each!

                            Not an area of expertise for me, but was tempted by this particular Nonesuch album on a chazza sweep in Cheadle (!) quite recently, and found it a pleasant enough listening experience - certainly helps to clear the air after an extended Quebecois garage or nu-disco session.....

                              I've picked up a fair bit recentl but this 10" is probably the highlight:
