5.0 out of 5 stars Superb sampler, 25 years of quality, 15 Dec. 2006
This review is from: WORLD CIRCUIT PRESENTS (Audio CD)
29 tracks, 7 previously unreleased (some live, some studio). Ranging through predominantly the African and Cuban output of the World Circuit this is a 'sampler' package of the highest quality.

The established stars are here, Ali Farke Toure, Buena Vista Social Club, Toumani Diabate, Orchestre Baobab etc but the quality does not stop there. Some Moroccan trance, Kenyan beat, Radio Tarifa's eclectic mix, a touch of Rai; the list goes on. Not a duff track and some genuinely special performances full of energy, passion and emotion. In the traditions of the best World Circuit output the artists are given room to breathe and improvise and the recording standard is uniformly high. The real standout amongst the new tracks is a gem from the Toure/Diabate 'In The Heart Of The Moon' sessions.

A superb collection for the existing fan who wants a 'Greatest Hits' disc plus enough new material to get you delving into the World Circuit catalogue. Also a disc to introduce the merely curious to the quality and beauty of the finest world music.
