Top Ten World Music Albums of Summer 2011

by Rachel Devitt  |  August 16, 2011

This edition of the World Roundup underscores just how vast and wide-ranging the music under the ambiguous umbrella term "world" can be, and at the same time, what beautiful common ground exists there. Afropop, Balkan brass, Brazilian tropicália, Haitian-Cuban choral folk music, East African dub, globe-trotting electro-funk ... you'll find all that and more below. But even this disparate range shares an investment in and undying dedication to the groove, whether it inspires a meditative trance or rocking-out jam-band exuberance. So sit back and let it all sink in.
