About the album
Globalisation, ease of travel, and 24-hour media showing the Earth’s remotest corners has proved that the world is indeed small. In some way it has also made us protective of our local heritage, drawing the culture of one’s home country into sharper focus. This world music series shows the musical side of the phenomenon. This exciting set of discs, featuring some of the best musicians in the world, contains carefully chosen music in compilations possessing a natural musical flow. None of the musicians play electric instruments, giving the music a fabulous authentic feel, and many performances are live, allowing the local atmosphere to come sparkling through. The box set contains the six discs in the series: Brazil (COR16058), China (COR16061), Ireland (COR16063), Persia (COR16065), Flamenco (COR16068) and India (COR16070).
