    Thank you for this one. I am aware of him but am not sure I had heard that track before and I haven't heard the full album. Many thanks too to LezLee and Mollie John for a couple of very interesting clips.

    Albanian Folk Music

    An acquired taste, perhaps, but deeply mysterious and moving.

    Once heard, never forgotten.

    The Saz'iso record was produced by the legendary Joe Boyd:

    Laver Bariu - Kaba me Klarinet

    Lovely transcendent vocals by Robyn Stapleton singing Scottish poet Robert Burns' "Ae fond kiss"...

    I'm not certain just how tight or loose the concept of "world music" is being defined but this tune is insanely catchy...

    Three excellent, relevant, clips for which many thanks. Actually, I didn't know of Robyn Stapleton as a solo artist. What a great voice, especially for that Burns' song. What with the Capercaillie earlier, (Karen Matheson's is another great voice) I am sensing that there might well be some Scottishness in you (?!).

    As for what qualifies as world music, I am not going to provide any rigid sort of definition as that would be too narrowing for other people in deciding on contributions. It was essentially a marketing concept when a board sat down in the early 1980s to decide how to promote music from around the world so that it would broaden and sell. Peter Gabriel was, of course, heavily involved following on from the beginnings of the Womad festival. Some argue against the term these days on the grounds it could sound too much like an extension of Empire. But I tend to defend it. There has to be some term if it is not to fade away.

    As a very general steer:

    WM goes off in many directions so one person would be looking essentially at roots music and another at modern global beats. At the end of the day, there is a certain feeling around what and whether to include. The field recordings of Alan Lomex would be there. Aspects of the blues. So too rather obscure 1960s psychedelia from all corners of the globe. Roots reggae. Latin. Afrobeat. Certainly historical figures like Trenet are suited to it but perhaps Sacha Distel wouldn't be as he was a pop singer. You could also get away with Sigur Ros and other indie-ish bands with some distinctive qualities though probably not Abba.

    Hope this is helpful!

    Excellent post - my compliments! - - and thanks for the clarification as to the criteria as it provides a greater sense of directions which should or should not be taken... Once again, great thread idea - one of the best I've seen. Wish I would have thought of this one!

    Paternal grandparents were from Scotland - maternal were Québécois who could trace their lineage to before the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and yes they and the other good people of la belle province held (and do still hold) a grudge about the outcome almost 300 years later -

    I think I've linked to this group in another thread, but I like this song. Light in Babylon is comprised of an Israeli of Iranian descent (fierce, dark-eyed vocalist-drummer), a Turk (dulcimer-like instrument) and a Frenchman (guitar), as I recall, so suitably mixed to be authentic "World Music" practitioners:
