World 2002

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Finally, world music enthusiasts can share in the annual double-disc compilation mania that's swept the rest of the music industry. The third installment of the BBC DJ Charlie Gillett's World series, the first to be released in the U.S., is chock-a-block with world music "hits" that span the globe. Not every track is new -- instead, the compilation limns the hottest sounds of the year. Fittingly, for a period that fairly exploded with African wonders, World 2002 spends much of its time on the mother continent and environs. Whether it's the Mali-mania evoked by tracks from Salif Keita, Damon Albarn's Mali Music, Issa Bagayogo, and Djelimady Tounkara; the sunny grooves ...

Finally, world music enthusiasts can share in the annual double-disc compilation mania that's swept the rest of the music industry. The third installment of the BBC DJ Charlie Gillett's World series, the first to be released in the U.S., is chock-a-block with world music "hits" that span the globe. Not every track is new -- instead, the compilation limns the hottest sounds of the year. Fittingly, for a period that fairly exploded with African wonders, World 2002 spends much of its time on the mother continent and environs. Whether it's the Mali-mania evoked by tracks from Salif Keita, Damon Albarn's Mali Music, Issa Bagayogo, and Djelimady Tounkara; the sunny grooves of Madagascar's Tarika; or the dramatic desert jams of Tinariwen, it was clearly the year for Afro-pop. But there are more treats, including the foremost throat-singing fusioneers: Yat-Kha's Tuvan punk rock and Sainkho Namchalyak's electronica-dipped 2-step from the steppes. Even more obscure to U.S. audiences are Bosnia's Mostar Sevdah Reunion, who represent in Gypsy brass band style, and Palestine's Amal Murkus, an actress and singer who has been well received abroad. World 2002 mixes up the contemporary-sounding productions of studio-driven artists (Asian dubsters Temple of Sound, Spain's Abya Yala) with rootsier efforts from Congo's rumba all-stars Kékélé, French Gypsy axeman Thierry Robin, and others. Of course, the big stars are here, too: Manu Chao, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Gigi, Rachid Taha, and more. With these two wonderfully sequenced discs, world music fans will heartily cheer, "Now that's what I call music!"
All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
The annual compilation by BBC world music disc jockey Charlie Gillett finally makes its way to America, and most welcome it is. With 37 cuts spread across two discs, there's definitely something for everyone from virtually every corner of the globe. While a lot of this music is available in the U.S., the joy is in the little gems that might have been overlooked or simply never found release here, like Souad Massi's "Bladi," where she sounds like an Algerian Tracy Chapman, or Javier Ruibal's stunning take on flamenco with "Isla Mujeres." But there's not a dud among the selections here, from the opener of young Portuguese fadista Mariza to the throat-singing rock of Tuva's Yat-Kha. While billed as a 2002 compilation, don't take that at face value -- some of the original release dates go back a couple of years. That doesn't diminish the quality of the music, however, since there's not the same sell-by date on world music that there is on pop. Add some very informative liner notes and you have an irresistible package that takes you merrily around the globe in a couple of hours and brings you home richer and satisfied; what more can you ask from any compilation?

    A Fabulous Combination of flavour, sounds and beats

    For anyone who enjoys foreign music, this CD is an amazing compilation of brilliant music. Regardless of not being able to understand the lyrics, the beats and rhythm of the song itself is enough to make you addicted to each track and transport you away. With so many fantastic choices, if is well worth the money.
