5.0 out of 5 stars Observer feature 27 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It is no surprise that this is such an essential compilation, put together as it is by OMM's regular contributor and BBC Radio London broadcaster Charlie Gillett. Many of the acts that he has championed in these pages in recent months feature - from the French singer Camille to Croatia's Darko Rundek to Daby Balde; in fact, 33 artists from 28 different countries are represented, a far wider sweep than the 'world music' marketeers would normally allow. And while there is plenty of 'traditional' instrumentation here, there's very little that isn't unashamedly modern, either. Brilliantly sequenced, this is a passport to exciting new horizons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sunday Times Review 10 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The DJ Charlie Gillett's annual surveys always offer a brisk alternative to a weekend at Womad. Anyone passionate about Latin American traditions, though, will feel distinctly short-changed by his choices. Russia gets a much bigger slab of the playlist than Brazil, which is like picking nine England footballers for a world team and leaving the South Americans on the bench. The fado diva Mariza and the Argentine accordionist Chango Spasiuk are as stylish as ever, and if Nairobi Yetu prove that Kenyan rap is pretty boring, Gillett's ear makes this a provocative cut of the music mainstream radio does its best to ignore. Five stars

Ah, listening to this double-album (or a double-whammy of sound in my case) brings back good memories. It was the summer of 2006, I was in my second year of University and in experimental listening mode. I've always been a funk, soul and disco lover and knew of some of the great African experimentations with these, from the likes of the greats like Fela and Manu Dibango. I also knew a lot of Indian classical, through my own musical background, and some of the artists working on fusing these with electronica, drum n bass and jazz, the likes of Nitin Sawhney and members of the Asian Underground. My ears were introduced to new artists through the BBC world music awards collections [also an excellent buy]. But what really clinched the deal was this compilation I purchased at a CD fair in the student union. It startled, amazed, confused and made me search out more - I went on to present a world music show on my student radio station, and my CD collection has grown in size from the likes of the artists in this collection.

Charlie Gillett (God bless his soul and what he bought to the world music scene) is an expert craftsman when putting together an ideal compilation of the best ethnic grooves and experiments of the past year. He hasn't always hit the mark in my opinion - World 2004 and 2003 fall a little short, there isn't enough ''pick-up'' for me - but here, the collection rides on the crest of the wave. From Daby Balde's soaring 'Sora' (mind the pun, but it is exactly that), to the fusion of ska and Balkan brass in 7/8 time on Mei Tei Sho's mindblowing 'Lambi Golo', Camille's vocal orchestra on 'Au Port' to the late Ali Farka Toure pitted against Toumani Diabete, guitar vs kora battle, on 'Kadi Kadi' - and that's just the first CD.
