Khalifa Ould EIDE & Dimi Mint ABBA .... Mauritania
The Tortoise's Song 7'55
(Moorish Music From Mauritania) [World Circuit]
A brilliant disc of music rarely recorded. Moorish musicians in Islamic Mauritania are known as iggawin, comparable to the griots of Mali. The first half of the disc features the ardin (a 14 string relative of the kora) and the tidinit, a small lute similar to the ngoni. The electric guitar comes into play later. Some pieces feature clapping as you would hear in Gnawi music from Morocco.

Daniel HUAN .... Roti, Indonesia
Baku Natia 11'44
(Troubled Grass and Crying Bamboo; The Music of Roti) [IAS, independent]
Most of the music on this album is probably nothing like any you have heard from Indonesia before. The featured instrument is the sasandu, a plucked bamboo-tube zither with a palm-leaf resonator. Daniel Huan cannot seriously be considered a traditional music performer. According to the producer and recordist Christopher Basile, his songs are beautiful but idiosyncratic with very personal references and puns. Huan is obviously quite a character.

Bikram GHOSH .... India
Morning Contemplations 7'01
(Talking Tabla) [Music of the World]
This is a tabla album, so ... accompanying the tabla on this piece, Tarun BATTACHARYA plays santur.

NGUYEN Dinh Nghia .... Vietnam / USA
Improvisation in "ai" mode 7'01
(Eternal Voices - 2 CD set) [New Alliance]
This lament on the sao (a transverse flute) sounds almost like one continuous phrase because of the incredible circular breathing technique. This album features the Phong NGUYEN Ensemble playing a wide range of traditional Vietnamese music.
