This excellently eccentric Rough Guide is a whistlestop tour of wild world music. The majority of music here is previously un-released, so you won't hear this anywhere else, and it's not worth missing. Enjoy everything from a trio of Romanian harmonica enthusiasts to a Zimbabwean-Brazilian jazz project and more.
All the tracks featured here were entered into World Music Network's innovative 'Battle of the Bands' competition. Via our online forum artists from all over the globe can visit our website, upload a track and drive support via social media platforms. The winning tracks are featured on this compilation, and considered for other World Music Network projects. This unique approach promotes contemporary world music straight from the source.
Wee Man's favourite is from the album 'Dreaming Inside Waters' by the group 'Suaramantra'. Delicious.
