Global Voices: Traditional, Sacred & Contemporary Vocal Music

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
In the 1990s, some of world music's most thoughtful compilations came from Music Of The World, a small label based in Chapel Hill, NC. This lavish three-CD box set unites a variety of vocal-based music from around the world and breaks it down into one category per CD: traditional, sacred and contemporary. The first two are closely connected -- all of the sacred or spiritual music heard on Disc Two is traditional rather than contemporary. Within each category, MOTW is quite broad-minded; the Traditional and Sacred discs, for example, boast artists with ties to India ({the Katnataka College of Percussion}), Colombia ({Maria Olga Pineros}), Laos ({Khamvong Insixiengmai}), Hungary ({Voces Equales}) and Africa ...

A cappella performances and tribal chanting abound on those discs, and when instruments are used, they're acoustic instruments. Meanwhile, the Contemporary disc becomes an eclectic survey of modern ethno-pop thanks to the inclusion of vocalists from Brazil ({Boca Livre}), Haiti ({Boukan Ginen}), Spain ({Mayte Martin}), Bulgaria (Folk Scat}), Greece ({Diaspora}) and the Congo ({Samba Ngo}). On the Contemporary disc, MOTW isn't nearly as slick as it could have been -- nothing as slick or high-tech as Algerian rai or Indian bangra is included. To say that the liner notes are thorough would be an understatement; MOTW includes a 52-page booklet that devotes at least half a page to each artist. For those who can afford to splurge on a three-CD set, =Global Voices= makes for consistently rewarding and unpredictable listening. ~ Alex Henderson , All-Music Guide
Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Culled from the impressive catalog of this North Carolina-based independent label, GLOBAL VOICES's three CDs labeled Traditional, Sacred, and Contemporary delve into the riches of vocal music from around the world. The 43 tracks range from cowboy Don Walser's Texas yodel, Kiowa hymns, and Baul music from India to flamenco, jazzy Brazilian choro, and full-tilt gospel. Although the voice is the main focus, many tracks have instruments, and indeed nothing on this set is as simple as it seems: The mind-blowing selection by Tran Quang Hai combines a Vietnamese melody with overtone singing from Central Asia. It sounds like he's playing the answering melody on flute, but, amazingly, it's all voice. It's also a neat retrospective on this scrappy label, whose world music releases are dependably sophisticated and boast excellent sound quality.
