An interesting mix of electronica and world music from Real World Records, which was established by WOMAD and Peter Gabriel over 30 years ago to help talented artists from around the world get international audiences. After a relaxing introduction with Window Seat from Portico Quartet, you get a pounding electronic track, Shadowman from Afro Celt Sound System, which wouldn't sound out of place in some action movie soundtrack. Charlie Winston's I Love Your Smile is a jazzy ballad which sounds like Supertramp with a muted trumpet. He sings a bit like Chris Martin too.

We get some straight forward indie rock from Black Swan effect with Winter Sun, and Hear me cry is a mellow instrumental with stabs of harmonica and acoustic guitars in washes of delay. Yungchen Lhamo has a plaintive song with with acoustic rhythms and shimmery electronically treated guitars. Maryam Mursal brings in a funky bass rhythm and a string section for Kufilaw (Take Care). Speaking in Tongues 1 and Excuse me are acappella performances, the first a percussive sounding piece that may or may not be actual lyrics by Sheila Chandra, the second is passionate song from Papa Wemba. Sevara Nazarkhan closes the sampler with Yor-Yor (Song to the Bride) which progress from its simple flute and percussion to full fledged song with an engaging melody line on a Dutar.

If you like electronica, world music or any sort of meditative songs with interesting textures and rhythmic ideas, it's worth checking this out.

This was a free copy and bare the Papa Wemba acapella - which prompted me to download it - I discovered Chila Chandra with her "Speaking in tongues" song that is mind-blowing. Worth getting it for those reasons... I'm sure that there are better songs from Real World's catalogue, but this compilation falls flat to me.

Not my choice of music, but the quality of the recording is good. Some people would love it but sorry , not for me.

I like the eclectic mix of music that Real World Records put out. This is no exception. Reminders of summery afternoons at the Womad festival make this a perfect sampler for anyone wanting to hear what is on offer there.

If you fancy something a bit different you won't be disappointed here. A very worthwhile freebie sampler. You get to check out original sounds you wouldn't necessarily buy. Somewhere in this mix is the sound of the future.

Great Little sampler with an eclectic mix of good sounds offering a taste of world music. Was familiar with nearly all. Nice memories from the past. And it was free!

Despite successfully installing the Amazon software, the downloads repeatedly failed until eventually time ran out. So I'm afraid that this was a poor experience.
