Music and travel go hand in hand, and during these difficult times of lockdown throughout the world one is having to learn to experience these once taken for granted enjoyments from the confinement of one’s home.
These 15 tracks have been drawn from our ever-expanding Riverboat and Rough Guide catalogue and offer a wonderful musical taster to some of Asia’s most beautiful and diverse cultures. From the virtuoso musicianship of Calcutta’s guitar master Debashish Bhattacharya and Carnatic violinist Jyotsna Srikanth to far flung gems by Indonesia’s Sambasunda Quartet and China’s Manhu, this is the first of five playlists which will focus on a different continent each week.
In line with our label ethos, this playlist promotes deeper understanding of musical traditions and global cultures and is testament to our continued commitment to releasing lesser-known artists from places often under-represented in the Western market.
From all at World Music Network, we hope you enjoy this selection and stay safe.
