Anybody have any recommendations for a compilation of Romani music? My attempts to track stuff down at local record stores have all yielded fusiony new age world garbage. Can someone help me find the real shit?

p.s. I'm not looking for flamenco, though fine music it is.

Speaking of Flamenco, here's a great album by Ramůn Montoya someone posted to the I Hate Music board. Beautiful stuff.

It's painful to say, but the rough guide to the Balkans is a really good one. Some of those rough guides are pretty tepid, but there's some amazing stuff on that one.

Also, as far as strictly Romani music goes, you really can't go wrong with Taraf de Haidouks

Incidentally, I'm on a borrowed computer at the moment, but I'll have my own sorted in time, and I'll up some stuff of intrest then. I have some wonderful Aboriginal music that should really be listened to by other people.

Check out this mongolian traditional music. It's a pity that the clip is so short, it made me weep tears of joy when I've first heard it, and I wish there was more information about who's playing and who's singing. Wonderful stuff.

Mikis Theodorakis - Resistance (Historic Recordings From The Underground And Exile)

.
 
Mikis Theodorakis (born July 29, 1925) is perhaps the most important Greek music composer of the 20th century, and one of the most significant in the world.
Politically, until the collapse of the military junta in 1974, he identified with the left; in 1990 he became a member of parliament with the centre-right New Democracy party, a move which since, he has said to regret. He has consistently opposed oppressive regimes.
He is known internationally for his scores in the Hollywood films, "Zorba the Greek" (1964) and "Serpico" (1973).

The sound documents published on the album "Resistance" were recorded during the dictatorship of the colonels in Greece, following the military coup of April 21, 1967.

They are at once music and lived resistance. They are a scream, desperation and hope.

Recorded on a simple tape recorder under circumstances of illegality, house arrest, banishment. A testimony to circumstances in which life, death and dignity were at stake.

There's loads of Hurdy-Gurdy stuff on youtube. I've picked some of the ones I like. I'm sorry again that I don't have the technological ability to contribute proper uploads to this thread, but I'll up a gash-load of stuff as soon as I do.

This one moved from the bottom to the top. It's real shame the audio is rubbish, this is great. A website for this band. ANYONE SPEAK HUNGARIAN?
Hurdy Gurdy
Mo' Hurdy Gurdy
Hurdy Gurdy on NY tube, it looks like
Probably wankers playing Hurdy-Gurdy, but pleasant nonetheless
Getting bored of Hurdy-Gurdy yet?
I could happily listen to Hurdy-Gurdy for hours, it seems..

Incidentally, while I'm here, Marras and myself were talking about setting up a forum for (want of a better name) 'world music'. The first port of call is some description that's slightly less despicable and suggestive of Sting than 'world music'. Secondly, is anyone else interested in helping set-up/ maintain such a thing?

I would be willing to help in any way I can.

Let me defend the title 'world music' for a moment: you know what it refers to.

Semantics, semantics...

Yes, yes, that wasn't a criticism of this thread title. It'd be great to have you on board actually. And I suppose a name for the forum isn't the most pressing concern. I just have reservations about that Sting side of things.

There is a lack of good web sites that work as portal for (ahem) global sounds on the net. I'm interested in what you and Pork propose.

I'm super down for a world music board. Don't know how I can help really, as I'm pretty useless when it comes to computers, but you guys have my support however you need it.
Maybe "non-anglo/american folk music" is a better description of what the term world music tries to convey, especially since last time I checked England and America were still part of the world. Though I guess since non-English pop music also falls under the world music category much of the time it can't really be called folk music.

And there's a fine tradition of Morris dancing/ sea shanties and the like which don't come under the ambit of non-Anglo/American 'folk music' in the popular consciousness but are still very much English folk traditions. That's not to mention the various Welsh, Scottish and Irish traditions - what's the difference between Egyptian/ Arabic/ Eastern-European bagpipe music and the bagpipe music of Ireland/ Scotland?

Perhaps something focussing on folk traditions? Which of course excludes new music, which would leave out soca, soukous and highlife (not to mention a fair few other things. You see the problem?

But yes, Mr Beard also more than welcome. It'd be nice if someone with a bit of net-nous could do some leg-work (although I have a designer mate who may be able to step in) and have the peeps from here as admin-y types.

Sea Shanties.

I was upping them for a mate, but you reprobates might as well have them.

Great new blog: http://endofworldmusic.blogspot.com/

Here's some Sinawi music from Korea, an interesting improvised traditional form, used to accompany Shaman rites, that I don't know that much about. Something very fascinating about it, is the sonic resemblance, at times, to free-jazz and western improvisational styles. The strident timbres and large pitch-bends are always a treat, as in other Korean styles like sanjo.

There are other goodies at the root site, but there's a lot, without very much accompanying information. Look for Daegum and Kayagum sanjo pieces! (English spellings may vary)


Maybe you guys who want to start a world music board should get in contact with this guy. Dude knows his shit / seems to be coming from a similar point of view (read his introductory post).
