ARTIST ... Origin
Title  Duration
(Album) [Label]

Lisa GERRARD .... Australia
(a) The Rite 3'19
(b) Ajhon 3'00
(The Mirror Pool) [4AD]
Dead Can Dance fans who are particularly fond of Lisa's influence will adore this disc, using mostly real strings and winds under the direction of John Bonner. Fine work. To be released on August 21. Dead Can Dance are about to commence another international tour, and sadly Australia will miss out again. I've been told it is just too expensive for them to consider.

Natacha ATLAS
Fun Does Not Exist - Dolmus Mix 6'20
(Diaspora) [Beggars Banquet]
It's a shame that this superb mix by Trans-Global Underground wasn't used as the basis of the vocal version.

Tokiko KATO, Hector ZAZOU .... Hokkaido / Japan
Yaisa Maneena 6'12
(Songs From The Cold Seas) [Columbia]

SYNERGY & Reilly LEE .... Australia
The Hour of the Dragon 6'23
(Matsuri) [Celestial Harmonies]

Kazue SAWAI .... Japan
Midare (excerpt) 2'28
(Eye To Eye) [Republic]

Omar Faruk TEKBILEK .... USA / Turkey
Whirling Dervish 10'35
(Whirling) [Celestial Harmonies]
At last, a traditional style solo album from this immensely talented man. Although Brian KEANE produced it, he thankfully has not over-sweetened the sound with western and electronic instruments.

Brian KEANE & Omar Faruk TEKBILEK .... USA / Turkey
Imaginary Traveller 6'03
(Beyond The Sky) [Celestial Harmonies]

Najat AATABOU .... Morocco

(b) Tudo tem se limite 4'30
(Cesaria Evora) [Nonesuch]

Ed KUEPPER .... Australia
La di doh 4'48
(Character Assassination) [Hot]
Ed Kuepper (pron. Cooper) may seem like a strange inclusion on this program, but as one of Australia's finest songwriters, I couldn't resist.
