Overview

Brooke Wentz's inspired collection of women artists from around the world, GLOBAL DIVAS, launched a successful tour of artists Susana Baca, Stella Chiweshe, and Tish Hinojosa. It also birthed an estimable sequel, DIVINE DIVAS. The formula is same -- excellent selections, impeccably sequenced over three CDs. Some of the most underrated or lesser-known talents get top billing on this set: In addition to Baca and Hinojosa, the roster includes Sephardic Jewish music archivist Judy Frankel, Indonesian dangdut queen Detty Kurnia, and husky-voiced Claudia Gómez from Colombia. Of course, the scope of this excellent compilation, equally suited to reference and to casual listening, ranges from Mali's Nahawa Doumbia to Ani DiFranco.
