Xingu is a fun place that exists in the World Music universe of Luaka Bop, the record label co-founded by David Byrne. It's really just a 5-song sampler from some of the latest Luaka artists, including opening and closing cuts from Javelin, a somewhat experimental duo who like to throw everything including the kitchen sink into their songs -- synthesizers, weird samples, angelic harmonies, and funky beats! In between we get a song each from Delicate Steve, who made waves early this year with his Steve Wonder homage, Wondervisions (although the song here sounds more like a Bollywood version of an East African melody); and Peruvian and Brazilian legends Susana Baca and Tom Ze, respectively. The latter's vinyl-only box set is high up on my wish list, but until that is fulfilled, I'll content myself with his skewed bit of bossa here, "Roquenrol Bim-Bom." Great title, eh?

Only 5 songs to this sampler, and each song quite a bit different in style. Going from a rumba beat to a vocal beauty, from a disco flavor to a tribal influenced rhythm, all are fresh new artists one probably hasn't yet heard. A welcome bit of unique sounding tunes to burn off the same old same old routine.

Hip, free, diverse music curated by the Talking Head mastermind - David Byrne. Some of these selections will sit nicely on a compilation. And did I mention - free.
