I hope to be able to make some of the best folk music from around the world available to you here soon, but I need to talk to the people who own the copyright first to get permission (the idea is that they might allow a hissy version or extracts to be played here for free, but if you want to get a high-quality copies you will be directed to a place where you can buy them (though it's important to point out that this Web site and its owner(s) will not make any money out of any such sales: I want the whole lot to go to the musicians).

In the meantime, here are a few links to examples from youtube of the kinds of music I want to introduce you to:-

Juan Luis Guerra: Ojal que llueva caf. (Dominican Republic).

K'jarkas: Nia Mia & Muchacha de Alas Blancas & La Ventana. (Bolivia).

Rumillajta: Several items, including Pachamama. (Bolivia).

Inti Illimani: La Partida (written by Victor Jara). (Chile).

Victor Jara: El derecho de vivir en paz. (Chile).

Teddy Afro: Haile Selassie & Mona Lisa & Hewan Dewasa. (Ethiopia).
