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.

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.

"Lovely soft rhythms caress your ears on 'Perdao' that make you think it’s Ipanema time, and then [Faraco] throws a curve and brings you to Nashville via wonderful American sounding folk tunes...Sublime and satisfying on a plethora of levels."

Founded in 1978, A Filetta has produced 15 albums and is one of the leading choral groups in Corsica. Consisting of six male voices, this extraordinarily creative group perpetuates the island's oral traditions while also exploring other areas of polyphonic song, particularly in the creation of contemporary works. The religious and secular pieces included on the new album Castelli were written for theater, dance and film. They explore the themes of memory, nostalgia and utopia, all while questioning the meaning of life.
