all about jazz : – “…a beautiful collection of some of the best, brightest and most representative music gems… innovative and ambitious artists who have married their traditional music with the popular music of today, like band joi, which mixed bengali music with breakbeat
folk radio uk : – “…but it’s the other tracks that surprise and delight in equal measure, from..the tightly wound beats and bass of joi…”
world music central : – “… normally, i list an album’s highlights in my reviews, but in this case it’s hard to choose as this is truly an outstanding compilation and practically every artist selected deserves complete attention. the list is mind blowing: nusrat fateh ali khan, maryam mursal, joi, little axe, the blind boys of alabama, peter gabriel,
the monolith cocktail : – “…cd number 1 charts ‘significant highlights’ and ‘classics’ from the label’s history… opening selection introducing (or of course re-introducing) us to the mystical Sufi devotional vocals of nusrat fateh ali khan… the trans global desert song of maryam mursal… and the alternative dub/electronica bangladesh and uk fusion collective joi…”
