Очень любопытный сборник от Putumayo вышел . Веселенькие такие трэки вроде девятого с припевом “…Шри Кришна Санкиртана”. =) Неплохо. То есть вообще вышел сборник для якобы занятий йогой, но нам он очень интересен в первую очередь тем, что прекрасная музыка сочетается в нем с текстами духовной направленности.

  11. Gurejele – Watolea – (New Caledonia)

Putumayo presents South Pacific Islands, one of the first widely distributed collections of contemporary music from this remote region of the world. In fact, most of the artists featured on South Pacific Islands are little known outside their country of origin.

Blessed with stunning natural beauty and unique cultures, the islands of the South Pacific have long symbolized paradise on Earth to outsiders. Of course, life is more complicated than travel brochures and Gauguin paintings would lead one to believe. The people of the South Pacific, like elsewhere, struggle with the impact of modernization and are fighting to revitalize and redefine their traditions before they disappear.

Both Telek and O-shen come from Papua New Guinea, a tropical archipelago of dense rainforests and active volcanoes. Telek combines ancient Tolai traditions and contemporary Western music without compromising his native culture. O-shen, the son of American missionaries who was raised in a remote Papuan village, fuses traditional Pacific music with hip-hop and reggae.

OK! Ryos and Gurejele are leading figures in New Caledonia’s Kaneka movement, a unique music that blends local polyphonic singing styles and traditional rhythms of the Kanak culture with pop and world beat flavors.

Te Vaka, a New Zealand-based band with members from across Oceania, is creating a pan-Pacific pop music that incorporates elements from a variety of cultures into an appealing fusion. Fellow New Zealander Whirimako Black endeavors to bring Maori music, culture, and language to a broader audience.

Finally, from far-off Rapa Nui, better known as Easter Island, comes Matato’a. Their native language is now spoken by less than 3000 people and is blended here with an upbeat, cross-cultural mix of music.

This enhanced CD features an OK! Ryos music video filmed on the picturesque beaches of New Caledonia, as well as informative liner notes in English, Spanish, and French, striking Lonely Planet photographs and the recipe of a traditional South Pacific dish.

Putumayo Presents: Women of Africa [2004]

Lable: Putumayo World Music


  1. Le Tshephile Mang (South Africa) – Judith Sephuma *****
  2. Bahia (Benin) – Angelique Kidjo
  3. Mi Nada Um Ca Tem (Cape Verde) – Maria De Barros
  4. Mayihlome (South Africa) – Sibongile Khumalo
  5. Retany (Radio Edit) (Madagascar) – Tarika

  10. Raoui (Algeria) – Souad Massi
  11. Sina Mali, Sina Deni (Free) (Burundi) – Khadja Nin
  12. Vimba (South Africa) – Women Of Mambazo *****

Women have always played an essential role in the preservation of African culture. From lullabies sung to sleepy children to chants of celebration, women are important bearers of tradition. Unlike some areas in the world where females are discouraged from taking part in public musical performance, in sub-Saharan Africa, music is an essential social activity for all members of the community.

While many musical instruments are traditionally played exclusively by men, women often provide the voice of Africa’s music. This legacy carries over from traditional to contemporary music, and many of today’s most popular singers in Africa are women.

Women of Africa features Putumayo’s favorite songs by women from Algeria to Zimbabwe. Ranging from internationally revered artists like Angèlique Kidjo (Benin), Tarika (Madagascar), Women of Mambazo (South Africa), Khadja Nin (Burundi) and Dorothy Masuka (Zimbabwe), to rising stars such as Judith Sephuma (South Africa), Souad Massi (Algeria), and Sibongile Khumalo (South Africa), to new discoveries Nawal (Comoros), Maria de Barros (Cape Verde), Kaïssa (Cameroon), and Dobet Gnahoré (Ivory Coast), the artists on Women of Africa represent a wide spectrum of today’s African music scene.

There has long been a cultural exchange between the East and the West. Marco Polo and the Silk and Spice trading routes began the process that, over time, has led to the creation of new musical styles. Putumayo presents examples of this ongoing musical interaction with the release of Asian Lounge. Travel from London to Bombay, Bali to Tokyo with this compilation of innovative Asian fusions, the sixth in Putumayo’s successful Lounge series.More than half the tracks on Asian Lounge have never been released in North America, paving a path for those who like to stay connected with ever-evolving music scenes. Japanese stars, the Yoshida Brothers kick off the collection with “Fukaki Umi No Kanata” (Beyond the Deep Sea). The brothers have achieved fame in Japan by reviving the popularity of the tsugaru-shamisen, the 16th century instrument they’ve mastered and incorporated into their modern sound.

A revival of another kind brings us Nitin Sawhney’s “Koyal” (Songbird), a song he composed for the soundtrack of a recently restored silent Indian film. Sawhney is perhaps the best-known musician featured on Asian Lounge. As an artist of Indian heritage currently living in the UK, Sawhney’s eclectic musical offerings incorporate everything from drum and bass to classical Indian music, making him a leading figure in Britain’s “Asian Underground”.

Also pulling from the rich heritage of Indian music is the German artist Prem Joshua, whose “Funky Guru” blends Sufi chants, Sanskrit poetry and Indian folk music with Western electronica. Joshua has become a music star in India and frequently records with noted Indian musician Manish Vyas. Their successful collaborations include “Water Down the Ganges,” the 11-minute opus.

Audiences around the world will also delight to hear “Eastern Journey,” a track from producer and multi-instrumentalist Biddu, whose extensive career includes co-writing credits on the 70s funk-disco super hit “Kung Fu Fighting”. A recurring figure in both the Indian and UK music scenes, Biddu has continued to remain in tune with popular culture.

Another familiar face on Asian Lounge is that of famed health and wellness guru Deepak Chopra. His “Oceans of Ecstasy” is an ambient dreamscape of sensual grooves, passion-soaked vocals, undulating chants and intoxicating rhythms. Other featured artists include Bali LoungeAncient FutureNataraj XTXCultures and Blue Asia, whose song “Campuhan” embodies the essence of this Asian Lounge collection. Meaning “two rivers meet” in Balinese,“Campuhan” merges the ancient and modern worlds by mixing Indonesian gamelan with ambient effects and spoken word. More artist information and a recipe for an Asian cocktail are included in the tri-lingual liner notes in English, Spanish and French.
