The hub of World Music is without doubt Putumayo Records. I discovered them in the late 90's and was introduced to Habib Koité (Mali), one of the most talented musicians in Africa.
They produce new records all the time and sign world music artists to their label. They recently founded a new label called Cumbancha and their first signed artist is none other than The Idan Raichel Project.
Currently playing on Al Baal's Stickam Player; Di Goldene Pave, from the album A Jewish Odyssey.
