Terrific!

I tend to shy away from world music out of fear the grooves will be a little too groovy, and the cultural appropriation infuriating, but if this is what I've been missing, I've been missing alot. I bought this from a friend's "wish list" and she lent it to me. I'm more than pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a trance attack, but instead have found each song to be rich, distinct, and involving. There are so many sounds at play on this CD. Flamenco, American folk, Persian, and ambient street noise beautifully blended. The raindrops on "Raindrops" sound too much like static, but other than that everything works. The vocals are gorgeous, instrumentation superb, and production (except for the above mentioned) near flawless. I don't know if I've become a convert to world music, but I am interested in their previous CD, "Beyond Denial."
