Coronation issue

Inspired by the latest wonderful turkish psychodelia compilations, this is my personal selection of favourite  “oriental” international songs and instrumentals – indian raggas, songs of indonesian street musicians, maroccan religious chants and derwisch dances, sahel folk tunes, egyptian jazz, north arabic soul or indian bollywood trash.

The title is from a 1975 lp, a selection of old nepalese folk tracks on ratna records, called “coronation issue”.

I tried to take only a few tracks from well known compilations – just some tunes of new great mississippi releases –  instead I tried to compile some of my beloved tunes from some rare LP´s, I found on the flea markets in berlin.
