Some time ago, I saw a CD by Odd Nordstoga, and bought it as it was obviously Scandinavian, and probably Norwegan. I put it on the Sony yesterday, thinking well, I've only listened to this once, so...

I got to a song titled "Texas" and realized that what I had was an album of Norwegan country music.

Check him out on Ewe Toob doing a rendition of "Whole Lotta Love":


That's Odd on the left...

A band I came across about 25 years ago, and which my Russophilic best friend said I would like: Kukuruza. He said the name means "corn" in Russian. They do Russian Bluegrass. I have have two CD's by them, and each one lost the jewel box papers, the only time it has happened to me, and it was the same band - strange.

My very early introduction to world music...well, Quebec at least. Amazing!


Be aware that the above link is for the third of nine tracks, all of them excellent.

I was wrong about Jim and Bertrand, for they were not my first exposure to world music, if by "world music" you mean anything/everything outside the US of A. No, it was the British folk band Pentangle, like so:

Very early in my exploration of world music, I found a CD in a used book store in West Plains, Missouri. It looked interesting, and it recorded instruments and sounds I'd never heard before. It was Marta Sebestyen and her back up band Musicas.
