The Rough Guide to World Music spans the music of seventy different countries and regions - everything from salsa to soukous, cajun to calypso, rai to qawwali. The detailed coverage brings together more than sixty expert contributors, whose feature articles take in the music to be seen and heard live around the globe, as well as on record. Major pieces are backed up by interviews with the key groups and artists, translations of lyrics, and extensive reviews and discographies. Whether you've discovered world music through Paul Simon or Ali Farka Toure, David Byrne or the Bhundu Boys, Celia Cruz or Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the Rough Guide is guaranteed to expand your horizons... and your CD, cassette and record collection!
