Overview

When hanging a portrait, it is very important what frame you choose. World Domination invites us to consider melody "portraits" from the Middle East, Azerbaijan, Africa, South America, etc. in contemporary western "frames." The lyric and background meld together succinctly thanks to the fact that these talented and developed artists are based in San Francisco, Vancouver, Seattle, Los Angeles and so on. They are knowledgeable both in the ethnic sounds they are bringing out and the culture they are bringing it into. This collection also works as a label sampler to the World Domination progressive world music label. Each track is off of a full-length X Dot 25/ World Domination release. Full information on the artists and source albums is provided in the full-color booklet. Among the salient cuts here are the amazing gypsy/flamenco guitar duets of Yussi & Django, masterful tabla percussion from Emma & Friends and the operatic tenor of Yaqub Zoroofchi.
