Sorten Muld
Mark II
The Man and the Elf-girl
As Stars Up High
Denmark's Sorten Muld blend traditional Nordic ballads, some of them hundreds of years old in a fusion of ancient and modern sound architecture with Ulla Bendixen's vocals whispering and soaring at the center of the mix.

Mark II went gold in Denmark and won two Danish Grammies.

Check out the Sorten Muld website (very cool indeed)

Kepa Junkera
Bilbao 00:00h
Del Hierro a Madagascar
Fasio & Lurra-terra
Santimamineko Fandangoa
Alula Records
Basque accordianist Kepa Junkera collaborates with an all-star cast of international musicians to create a contemporary vision of Basque music. This is the first Basque music that I've ever heard and indeed I expect that the title "Bilbao 00:00h" reflects the zero hour, the coming-out, as it were, of Basque music into the world music community. Kepa Junkera and Bilbao are a propitious combination.
