I was so excited by these you've no idea. I love this shit. This is the history of music and all music you listen to now somehow derives from these worldly folk classics. For you archivists out there this is gold dust! This is Hisham Mayet (Sublime Frequencies chappie) new label and this is a ten LP series so it's gonna take up quite a bit of space on your shelves guys. I've cleared some space already for these suckers! As the title suggests it's early 20th century recordings from countries such as Poland, Spain, China, Angola, Turkey, Mongolia, Russia, the Congo, Bulgaria, Puerto Rico, India, Mozambique, Ukraine, Trinidad, Kazakhstan, Ceylon, Tibet etc.... So it's comprehensive and I suspect there's even more far flung places to be dug up on the subsequent volumes. There's some amazing pieces of music here showcasing some of the finest folk from around the globe compiled by Pat Conte's extensive collection of 78's. There's crazy instruments you won't have heard the likes of before and some amazing use of vocals. A total must have for world music archivists!
