    Since 1987, Altan, a group from Donegal in Northern Ireland have been pleasing audiences with their brand of Irish folk music. They have performed with a wide range of artists including Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton and Bonnie Raitt. Ojos de Brujo was a commercially successful nine-piece band from Barcelona who described their style in the early 2000s as "jipjop flamenkillo" as in hip-hop with a little flamenco. Kanda Bongo Man is a Congolese soukous music who much appealed to the late legendary British broadcaster John Peel. Diblo Dibala was one of several popular musicians who worked with him early in his career. KBB's form of soukous gave birth to the kwassa kwassa dance rhythm where the hips move back and forth while the hands move to follow the hips.

    Big Blue Ball is an album by many artists which "grew from three recording weeks at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in the summers of 1991, 1992 and 1995. The group which included, among others, Sinead O'Connor, Joji Hirota, Papa Wemba and Natacha Atlas went under the same name. Gabriel who, of course, was originally in rock band Genesis, has been a champion of world music for much of his career. He co-founded the WOMAD festival in 1982 and has continued for decades to focus on producing and promoting world music through his Real World Records label. There are very few other people who so symbolically represent the significant efforts that commenced in the 1980s to promote world music and broaden its appeal, especially initially to western music audiences.
    Hiawatha, my friend, you've created a thread with legs - one that has the potential to last for years of exploration, enjoyment, and entertainment and for that you have my compliments and admiration.

    You've embarked upon a process in which you've created informative and insightful analyses of the featured artists which do much to illuminate this music but if I may respectfully offer a suggestion I would like to offer the following advice which you are of course free to disregard if you so wish...

    If you were to add hyperlinks leading back to the original post it would be easier to relate your information to the music itself.

    This would be an example -

    World Music - Song of the Day
    In order to do this you need to do the following (this advice is being offered not exclusively towards you but rather to anyone who might read this whether they be current or future members).

    The Altan post is numbered 231 -

    1.) Find the desired post and click on the post number which is located at the top right.

    2.) The page will refresh and the post number will now be incorporated into the full URL address at the top of the page.

    3.) Double click on the main page URL address (or swipe across) so that it is highlighted - then right click with your mouse to "Copy"...

    4.) On the message section which contains icons for "Insert image" and "Insert Video" is a "globe" icon to the left entitled - "Link".

    5.) Click on "Link" and a box will pop up with "http://" already placed within the box - This is important! - delete the "http://" which is in the box and replace it by pasting in the right-clicked "Copy" that you did on the main URL page.

    6.) Click "Ok" and the hyperlink leading directly to the post will appear right in your text as you've seen in the Altan example.

    I offer this as well-intentioned advice as it has been my experience that few if any people will actually take the time to wade through dozens of pages and hundreds of posts to track down the video that you're referencing. I can speak from experience as my attempts to find other examples did nothing but make me even more irritable than I already was which is saying a lot as I was already really pretty irritable to start with...

    I am not very tech savvy but will give it a try retrospectively on the posts that I have written. It seemed right to get the thread off to a flying start. Along with a range of other posts - others and mine - I have provided four blocks of ten links to convey and suggest to others the possible range. There will be a fifth and then they will come in lower volume, to use one of the favoured current phrases "going forward".

    Consequently, commentary of this wide ranging kind - which sets the scene by way of illustration - will not be permanently necessary. It will be more a case of "as and when" with links to websites too where apt. But as I say I will when feeling brave try to address the posts hitherto as you have recommended.

    Update:

    No. I have tried this tonight but I'm afraid that I haven't got this worked out. : back to the status quo.

    Background on Some of the Artists - 8

    King Sunny Adé is a singer-songwriter and instrumentalist in the West African musical style jùjú. A member of the Nigerian royal family, he was one of the first African musicians to gain international success (1970s onwards) and has been called one of the most influential musicians of all time. Dobet Gnahore is a singer with a political conscience from Côte d'Ivoire and came to fame early in the first decade of the 2000s with the CD "Ano Neko". Still only 36, she continues to be a rising world music star.

    Of all the Indian classical musicians, Ali Akbar Khan was one of the most influential in popularising that music in the West. He was a Hindustani of the Maihar gharana, known for his virtuosity in playing the sarod, and the composer of film scores. Astor Piazzolla was an Argentine tango composer, bandoneon player, and arranger who could also equally be placed in classical and . popular music. He revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style, nuevo tango. Perhaps best known for 1974's "Libertango", that composition has been successfully covered by many artists including Sharon Shannon and Kirsty MacColl.

    The Malian kora player Toumani Diabate, the son of Sidiki who recorded the first kora album in 1970, has been well known to Western audiences since the late 1980s. However, it was arguably the 1999 album "New Ancient Strings" which took him into the premier league. His collaborations with other artists have been wide-ranging from US blues musician Taj Mahal to the Icelandic pop singer Björk. Kodō is a professional taiko drumming troupe which while based on Sado Island, Japan has already made 4,000 international appearances. You can read about the history and other aspects of taiko drumming here:
