TOP OF THE WORLD PLAYLIST TRACKS

01 Guts ‘Déjame en Paz’ (feat Brenda Navarrete) From Estrellas on Heavenly Sweetness A smile-inducing drum beat and Navarrete’s husky, lilting cry introduce this chachachá; a delightfully skilful, joyful, and jazzy track. See p59

06 Orkestra Shkodra ‘Shegë E Ambël, Shegë E Butë & Ma Ke Gishtin Për Unazë’ From Like Nightingales in the Spring on Oda 3 Accordion, voice and clarinet weave together adeptly in this warm performance of rarely-heard Albanian trad. See p54

02 Mostar Sevdah Reunion ‘Moj Dilbere’ From LadySings the Balkan Blues on Snail Records Antonija Batinić breathes new life into a classic of Bosnian sevdalinka, making it groove with her unique vocals which combine rock and tradition. See p52

03 Raghunath Manet ‘Sindu’ From Veena Dreams on Plaza Mayor Company A captivatingly masterful display of uplifiting veena aerobics enriches this bewitching track, a workout guaranteed to sweep you along with its intoxicating rhythms and cadence. See p56

04 Lisa O’Neill ‘Silver Seed’ From All of This Is Chance on Rough Trade Records O’Neill’s lyricism and musicality are in full force here as her gentle, gravelly voice leads a poetic, powerful and musical search for strength in womanhood, maternity and vulnerability. See p53

07 Zène’T Panon ‘Kayman (Loya Rework)’ From Maloya Malbaron JuJu Sounds A mixture of electro and ancient call-andresponse with an eclectic use of BPMs, that gives credence to the idea that La Réunion is the current place to watch on the global music scene. See p44

08 Russo Passapusso & Antonio Carlos e Jocafi ‘Aperta o Pé’ From Alto da Maravilha on Máquina de Louco An unbelievably groovy Afro-Brazilian track from three masterful musicians; featured are irresistible vocal hooks and an energy that is totally infectious. See p47

09 Su-a Lee ‘Oblivion’ (feat Carel Kraayenhof ) From Dialogues on Sky Child Records Su-a Lee’s accomplished cello-playing braids the audio exhaust of Kraayenhof ’s soulful accordion emanations on this poignant piece. See p60

05 Elise Boeur & Adam Iredale-Gray ‘Brureslått Rull Fra Jølster’ From Fiddle Tunes on Fiddlehead Records Boeur plays the Hardanger fiddle, freshly exploring the moods and microtones of Norwegian folk with Iredale-Gray’s steady and beautiful guitar supporting. See p50

10 Baul Meets Saz ‘Biz Dunyadan Gider Olduk’ From Banjara on Uren Production Beginning meditatively, before picking up its pace, this delicious cut features powerful saz, smoothly hypnotic vocals and whirling melodic lines. See p58
