I listen to practically every genre of music. Jazz, blues, rock, classical.. But world music is a very special part of my collection, probably because of its (I think the right word will be) 'earthly' quality it usually has. At the same time I'm convinced there are many artists from different parts of the world I haven't discovered yet. Please feel free to list your 'desert island' world music recordings regardless of genre (reggae, ethno-jazz, just about anything that has ethnic roots or just such an element). Here is my personal shortlist : Bob Marley - just about anything, especially 'Survival' and 'Uprising' [video=youtube;-nR2vsnH4Is] Ravi Shankar - obviously! Mari Boine - a Norwegian vocalist exploring Sami culture - especially 'Eallin', 'Eight Seasons' and 'Live in London' bootleg. Elina Duni - an Albanian vocalist recording for ECM Anouar Brahem - a fantastic oud player (also ECM)

Noah is also the lead singer, fiddler, and founding member of the award winning acoustic band "The Barefoot Movement." Now based in Nashville, TN, the group continues to rack up the miles, touring both domestically and internationally. Wall's songwriting skills can be heard in the majority of the band's original material, which has been compiled onto three full length albums. The group's notoriety continues to grow through features in such publications as Country Weekly Magazine, RollingStone.com, CMT Edge, and Billboard.com. In 2014, they were presented with the Momentum Award for Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Declared "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene" by CMT, the band is still going strong, bringing shoe-less excitement to every performance.
