All Around The World

Fortunately you don't see so much of that dreadful term "world music" any more. But every now and then you get a record for which it is vaguely appropriate. One such is Kiran Ahluwalia's album, "Aam Zameen: Common Ground".

Kiran was born in India, raised in Canada and now lives in New York. She generally sings Punjabi folk tunes and traditional ghazals. Last year she went to France and the UK to record sessions with Tuareg legends Tinariwen and "new nomads on the block" Terakaft. The results are stunning.

"Rabba Ru" - Kiran Ahluwalia

"Mustt Mustt" (Extended Version) - Kiran Ahluwalia (featuring Tinariwen)

To follow that, we bring you a truly unique fusion of the West Midlands dialect, French chanson and crap.
