Ska Cubano, groupe britannico-cubain fort de ses douze membres, revisite l’amitié musicale qui unit la Jamaïque et Cuba. Avant la révolution de 1959, il existait un intense échange musical entre Santiago et le reste de la Caraïbe. C’est ainsi que, par exemple, le calypso est devenu très populaire à Cuba dans les années 40 et 50. Le concept de ce groupe, c’est la fusion entre le ska jamaïcain et les classiques mambo, rumba et son de Cuba, prenant appui sur leurs racines africaines. Ska Cubano sait allier des cuivres soutenus, des rythmes endiablés joués sur des percussions afrocubaines et un jeu de scène parfait pour un concert à nul autre pareil, qui marie tradition et modernité.

Mélina Kana, qui est une chanteuse grecque que j'ai découverte en l'an 2001. Elle possède une voix puissante et tendre très expressive qui me fait fondre de bonheur. Je ne me lasse pas d'écouter ses chansons dont les airs semblent dès la première écoute étonnamment familiers

Bien que de consonance grecque, l'instrumentation de ces chansons est variée: le bouzouki fait place au traditionnel piano puis à l'insolite cornemuse.

Le luth et le baglama accompagnent avec bonheur la voix cristalline de Mélina Kana. En s'entourant de grands compositeurs grecs, elle a réussi à créer, comme Arvanitaki, un passage entre la culture musicale de la Grèce méditerranéenne et celle de l’Asie centrale orientale

Origine du Groupe : India
Style : World Music , Sitar
Sortie : 1989

By Alex Henderson, All Music Guide

In world music, some instruments are so distinctive that hearing only a few notes brings to mind a particular country and a particular culture. No instrument is more identified with Japan than the koto (even though the koto was actually invented in China and brought to Japan by the Chinese), and just as no wind instrument evokes thoughts of Scotland more quickly than Celtic bagpipes, no string instrument says "India" more than the sitar. It's hardly India's only important string instrument -- even those with only a casual interest in traditional Indian music should know about the vina, the sarod, the sarangi, and the surbahar -- but it's certainly among the country's most recognizable. One of North India's excellent sitarists is Partho Das, whose Music of the Sitar was recorded in Delhi in June 1989. This album finds him playing three instrumental North India-style ragas; the shortest is the eight-minute "Dhun in Raga Bhairavi," while "Raga Bageshri" lasts 30 minutes, and the equally hypnotic "Raga Yaman" lasts 28 minutes. Such extended performances aren't for those with short attention spans, but because Das is such a master of his instrument, he has no problem holding the attention of serious sitar enthusiasts. Das is joined by tabla drummer Rashid Mustafa on this excellent CD.

Tracklist :
[01]. Raga Bageshri
[02]. Dhun (In Raga Bhairavi)
[03]. Raga Yaman

In July 2004, Faiz Ali Faiz joined forces with leading flamenco artists Miguel Poveda, Duquende and virtuoso guitarist Chicuelo in an astounding concert in the French town of Arles. The convergence of Qawwali and Flamenco musical traditions finds its roots in the north Indian region of Rajastan.

Qawwali master Faiz Ali Faiz with his ensemble, and Flamenco singers Duquende and Miguel Poveda, accompanied by guitarist Chicuelo, have lent themselves to developments of the relationship of those two great vocal traditions.

For his first solo album, 71-year-old trumpeter Mirabal has created a tribute to the seminal bandleader Arsenio Rodriguez. The latter was a tres-wielding maverick who reveled in Cuba's African heritage and gave new opportunities to the piano and brass. With three trumpeters on board, it is not surprising that the tracks often explode into blaring, festive, sloppy--precise fanfares, but Papi Oviedo on tres and pianist Roberto Fonseca more than hold their own. The singers also get a workout, notably on Me Bote De Guano, with its humming opening chorus and robust tenor lead vocal. The late Rubén González, who was Rodriguez's original keyboard man, is heard on Dombe Dombe, a tune he suggested for the set list. The sessions were recorded in Havana at legendary Egrem Studios with a minimum of technical bells-and-whistles and if the sonic texture is somewhat rough and remote, it only adds to the studio-live atmosphere.

Product Description :

Cuban trumpeter Manuel "Guajiro" Mirabel was among the first musicians recruited by British producer Nick Gold for the now legendary sessions at Havana's Egrem Studio that yielded the multi-platinum Buena Vista Social Club album and Wim Wenders' groundbreaking concert documentary. But the veteran player already had enjoyed a rich musical history, having performed for more than 40 years in some of the most celebrated Cuban nightclub orchestras. With this lively set of '40s-era conjunto classics, he pays tribute to pioneering Cuban composer-bandleader Arsenio Rodriguez, whose trumpet arrangements inspired Mirabel as a boy.

02. Para bailar el montuno

Zhubin Kalhor was born in 1980 from Iranian parents, he started his musical journey at the age of 14, when he started learning to play Daf (the framedrum) and Kamanche (the Iranian fidel) with the famous Iranian master Ardeshir Kamkar. After having played Persian classical music (radiff) with various masters, he left Iran and settled in Pune, India where he met musicians from all over the world. Years of playing with musicians trained in different background, like classic Indian, Jazz and Blues, Turkish, Arabic etc. gave Zhubin the opportunity to experiment and find his unique style.

But to him music is not only a matter of style. It’s about transforming spirituality and the mysteries of life into chemistry with the listener. The last 5 years Zhubin has performed solo and with various bands in concerts and festivals all over the world, among others with Bahramji, Ahura, Barbad, Pecheurs de Perles, Prem Joshua and the Mystics of Sound and Hawa.

Rajkumar Bikramjit Singh was born into the Royal family of Rajkumar Roton Singh and Yaimabi Devi in the town of Imphal in Manipur februari 65. In 1974 tragedy struck this self confident 8-year old. An accident left him incapacitated for over a year. Bikram was under closely monitored medical treatment for multiple fractures which he endured after falling off a tree. The shadow cast over young Bikramjit’s misfortune, prompted his father to gift him with his first flute whiles he convalesced. All that persistent practise paid off: Bikram was just thirteen years old when he started accompanying singers and other musicians on tours. He played for (AIR) All India Radio that year with some established radio performers. But his real reckoning came when he moved to Pune to pursue higher studies.

In 1989, Bikram moved to Pune to complete his masters in Archaeology followed by a Ph.D in 1992. However, pretty soon his academic pursuits came to a halt as Bikram dove passionately to pursue his musical career. He met fellow 'outcast' Zhubin there and discovered their shared spirituality easily overcame the 15 year generation gap and so together they released Himalay.

Their music blends ranging from Iran to India, a carpet weaving are the Northeast. Artist's compositions, where the two partners ranging from local to global album, relaxing at the peak of the Himalaya Mountains as a break in life. Misty mountains, the villages along the shores of rivers that pour, delicate anklets tinkle in the morning to the sound of the awakening of the image with the full album. Zagros'un mountains, the valleys of the passage, from the plains of the Himalayas extending the music's poetry breathe Zhubin and Singh.

Resonating with lush instrumentation and the sacred, lyrical richness of Persian poetry, this album represents a very important milestone in contemporary Iranian history. On May 22nd, 2007 the Italian and Norwegian embassies helped Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat plan a musical performance in Tehran, where women are banned from singing solo in public. Taking the stage without veils, the sisters stood together before that audience, bravely wielding the weapon of music against the continued oppression of women. The duo is now performing internationally and continuing to campaign against censorship. Maria Jett --World Pulse Magazine


Product Description
On May 22, 2007 a remarkable concert was held in a Persian garden in Tehran. With the help of both the Italian and Norwegian Embassies, two Iranian sisters, Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat performed without veils and bravely chose to use their music as a weapon against the oppression of women in their country. This concert was recorded and released by Norwegian label, Kirkelig Kulturverksted (KKV), late last year. Songs From a Persian Garden was produced by Erik Hillestad who also put together the critically acclaimed Lullabies From The Axis of Evil.

...If we want to understand what treasures we may find in the fantastic country of Iran, we should listen to the magic and the power given to its music and poetry. The fact that women in this huge country of 70 million people will never stop singing wherever they can and because of the intolerant doctrines and laws, Iranian officials contribute to making their singing one of the most powerful weapons to fight all kinds of reduction of the human rights in their country. --Erik Hillestad

The US version of Songs From A Persian Garden will also include a duet with Mahsa and Melissa Etheridge on Bob Dylan s I Shall Be Released .

Mahsa and Marjan were introduced to the American public on Lullabies... with Sad Sol , a duet with English diva, Sarah Jane Morris and a traditional Iranian Lullaby, Lalala Gohle Laleh .

This amazing compilation of Son Cubano is "priceless". From Beny More to Cachao to Celia Cruz, the intoxicating sounds speak to the heart and captivate the soul. There are no words to describe the Son experience. The essence of Afro-Cuban music is delivered by this album--an element that is missing from today's "Pop Salsa". I highly recommend "El Son No Ha Muerto: the best of Cuban Son"--You have to hear it to believe it.

01. Sierra Maestra - Chango Ta'Veni
02. Son 14 - Si Yo Siempre He Sido Son
03. Celina Gonzalez y el Conjunto Campo Alegre - Guateque Campesino
04. Nico Saquito - Maria Cristina
05. Canambu - Para Bailar el Son

08. Orquesta Aragon - Son al Son
