Vasumathi Badrinathan

Eighth-century Indian music from Vasumathi Badrinathan, written by women mystics and sounding positively futuristic? Uzbeck music from the mediaval courts of Bukhara? Ancient Mauretanian music from Aicha Mint Chighaly? Gnawa music brought by slaves over the Sahara - with impossibly funky basslines and metal castanets? It's all here and you feel your horizons expanding - and all of it has yet to be packaged for the world music market.
