Music
If your are interested in World Music, but don´t know where to start, I recommend you to start with a collection from any of the specialised record companies.


To co-operate with Vagamundos, please buy your music at:





PUTUMAYO. In my opinion, the best record company, with music selected all over the world; the CD cases avoid the use of plastic, the designs are very nice and the information about the musicians is detailed.
  • Putumayo Presents Kotoja: The Super-Sawale Collection
  • Travel the world with Putumayo
  • The best of world music
  • Women of the world international
  • One World (Putumayo)
  • Putumayo Presents: Latino! Latino!
  • Putumayo Presents A World Instrumental Collection
  • Putumayo Presents Romantica

REAL WORLD. Peter Gabriel´s record company was one of the first and still one of the best mixing music from all over the world.
  • Various Artists -Arcane
  • Various Artists -Bliss
  • Various Artists -Gathering
  • Various Artists -Lament

WORLD MUSIC NETWORK. The "music" version of one of the best selling travel guides, The Rough Guides.
  • Various Artists - African Blues

  • Various Artists - One Voice-Vocal
  • Various Artists - Oxfam Salsa

  • Various Artists -Rough Guide

This is a list of music that I consider essential if you want to know the music that is created around the world, by geographical area; Europe and America, except Brasil, are not included because they don´t produce much World Music. You will realize that Brazilian music is my favourite, because is a mix between african rithms, a beautiful language, portuguese, and the sensibility of a country that mainly has 2 passions: music and "futebol".



ÁFRICA

  • Miriam Makeba - Mama Africa. The South Africa music "mother"
  • Youssou N´dour - The Guide (Wommat). Music from Senegal with an european touch
  • Salif Keita - The Mansa of Mali. a "white" black that makes black black music
  • Manu Dibango - Wakafrica. The elegance of Jazz with an african touch


ASIA
  • Sheila Chandra - The Zen Kiss. A wonderful voice for a wonderful mix of indian, sefardi and pop music
  • Dadawa - Sister Drum. The "Björk" from China, with tibetan touch, and a very special voice.
  • Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Mustt Mustt. A Big Big musician from Pakistan
  • Himekami - Moonwater. Japanese music with an "New Age" touch


BRASIL (Any record from the following artists)
  • Antonio Carlos Jobim
  • Marisa Monte

WORLD CROSSOVER
  • Manu Dibango&Cuarteto Patria - Cubafrica. African and Cuban music are twin brothers.
  • Ketama - Shongai. Shongai 2. flamenco and Cora together with an amazing result.
  • Afrocelt Sound System - Sound Magic. Release. Yo may not believe it, but celtic and african music mix together very well.
