Rough Guide To The Music Of China

 

way out east of all this, the excellent Rough Guide to the Music of China kicks off on a Latin tip – just one example of the wildly varied range of surprising foreign influence apparent, despite the wealth of traditional sounds. And it’s all beautifully sequenced. The bonus disc by Mongolian revivalists Hanggai is a treat.
