Re-uploads

I thought it was time I finally got around to posting something. About a year (or so) ago there was a large "World Music Megapost" very generously uploaded by a Disject Membra, but within a few months of being uploaded, the blog and the links were deleted (the blog has now re-appeared but the post has not). So I thought I would re-upload some of my favourite albums from that post, along with a few albums that have been deleted or are difficult to access on other blogs, due to poor uploading and organising (We Love Music for example). About a quarter of the albums have scans included. Enjoy!

  5. They were reblogged a couple of times, but that big post of M F links was originally on the disjecta membra blog. Your list here includes some of my favourite albums: the Bangladeshi mouth organs, Kpelle music, Molams and Mokenes, Orchestre Et Lithophones Kabiye, Keralan percussion, Hmong, Rhodope bagpipes, Malay rainforest, Ede music - so many! But some I don't have - Paraguay, didgeridoo, Shomyo, Mysterious Albania, so, lots of thanks!

  6. Yes that's the one! To my knowledge the links were reblogged, for example here http://diferentemusical.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/megapost-world-music.html, but when the links died nobody re-uploaded them. Yes all those albums are incredible, especially the hmong, malay rainforest and ede music.

  7. I was expecting the Paraguay one to be Latin influenced but, no! to my surprise it's awesome ethnic indian chanting.

  8. Yes I also had similar expectations but was very pleased to hear that it was their traditional music as very little traditional music from the temperate regions of South America seems to have been recorded. One of my absolute favourite releases and one of the first albums containing traditional music was this http://www.discogs.com/Various-Amerindian-Ceremonial-Music-From-Chile/release/3449464 which used to be on this guys blog http://gonefishingwithfriends.blogspot.com.au/ but it seems to have vanished! I might have to re-upload it too.

  9. Hey, yes! I love that recording! All those slow horns and the everso trippy vibe. :) I got my copy from here, where it's still available: http://musicaextasisatussentidos.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/amerindian-ceremonial-music-from-chile.html
    But it's an obscure blog and it'd be a great re-share here for your audience.

  10. Yeah it's one of my favourites, as you say it has a dreamlike quality to it. Trust me my blog is fairly obscure too unfortunately. Seance only has 13 followers and usually gets between 5-20 views a day so not that many people know about it, but what would you expect from a blog that posts music like this

  11. Haha. But, wait...this is the best type of music! Ah, I don't understand what's up with people. :)

  12. Me either! While I definitely I agree with you , music taste is subjective so I guess for everyone there is a different kind of "best type of music". I think a lot of people are open to different kinds of traditional music it's just that access to it is particularly obscure for the most part so not many people are exposed to it unfortunately.
