selected world voices

Listen to the world, it is open...

As a child, I was once exposed a trio of Kabylian voices named after a range in the Atlas Mountains, Djurjura. I must confess it was a time when home was unafraid of other cultures... Although very little can be found on YouTube, their magic still shine on this link: Djurjura 

Later in life, I discovered Khaled, notably in duet with Brittany's great bard, Alan Stivell, on one of his albums, Douar,  but also love Khaled in French, and Aicha still remains a favourite Aicha ... But then again Alan Stivell with Youssou N'Dour A United Earth Part 1 ...Funny how a legacy of colonisation twangs like a rubberband... I treasure their voices.
And now I'm wandering further away eastwards,  other  world voices are reaching my heart.
Here is once at the following links: zakarya - best love song and Tara Jaff from Choman's world :)

Enjoy!

  1. I'll look up some of these, thanks for the links. I love world music and discovered a lot of wonderful African musicians when I was in Malawi. Hope you're having a lovely Easter break.
