Bareto play a potent mix of cumbia, psychedelia, dub and electronica and have established themselves as the foremost Peruvian band of their generation. On Impredecible, their fifth album, we hear the familiar languorous, loping rhythms of Peruvian cumbia, with its sonorous bass lines and intricate guitar motifs, spiced with a frisson of electronica and hooks aplenty. "Impredecible" is a glorious contemporary take on Peruvian cumbia - an album of richly melodious tunes and slow-burning intensity.

World fusion artist Titi Robin and Moroccan musician Mehdi Nassouli's "Taziri" is a Best Album of 2015 in Songlines Magazine!
"[Robin's] latest collaboration is as beguiling, lyrical and gentle on the ear as ever...[Nassouli's] soft, lyrical voice, gimbri and bendir float through these nine tracks, suffused by faint scents from a Gnawa lila ceremony. Robin’s distinctive filigree work opens ‘La Femme Ideal’, before Nassouli’s gimbri introduces a binding Gnawa bass motif."

Praise for Rua da Emenda:
"It's clear that he has proven himself and is claiming the right to lay back a little bit and sing like he would do among friends...The fact that he's so good is all the justification he needs."
- TOP OF THE WORLD, Songlines
"He’s got a lovely touch on the bluesy yet cheerful saudades such as the instrumental 'Flintstones,' and when he combines them with his sandy voice as on lilting 'Valse de um Pavao Ciumento' your heart lingers for a Lisbon café."
- Jazz Weekly
Before being joined by fellow musical travelers, it was alone in his home studio that Breton Celtic music legend Alan Stivell crafted this beautiful tribute to time, the change of seasons and poetry. Vocals, flutes, and percussion build the base for this contemplative music, a kind of avant-garde folk with an innovative take on electronic. On AMzer, available now on World Village, past and present come together in this harmonious expression of the passage of time.
