Overview

This is an uber-modern world music compilation with only the track by Choying Drolma -- the Tibetan Buddhist nun who has collaborated on a pair of albums with guitarist and sound engineer Steve Tibbetts -- being close to raw and un-messed with. Even Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's contribution here is electronically enhanced and edited with beats and such. There's nothing wrong with music like this: Nitin Sawhney's "Bengali Song" is lovely, as is "Argentina," by Benjamin Court; it's simply that a recording like this, full of overproduction and a certain studio-created mood, falls more into the new age category than it does world music because all of this music is interpreted by producers and DJs who in turn, give you that instead of the root music for you to engage yourself.
