I need cultural music advice

I want to expand my musical pallet, listen to music of different cultures (mostly instrumental, little vocal). Can you guys recommend any artists, songs, albums that are reasonably easy to find? Asian, Native American, different European (Irish, German, etc), just about anything would do.

Reason being? You can take music history courses at the local college/Uni. Plenty of great inspiration there.

Knowing the age of your kids/students would help. Not sure how they would take music such as African call and response/Yaruba worship, Cante Flamencos the music of gypsies, Ranchera Mexican country music and so forth.

My guess is that you're trying to educate them to learn more about different cultures and their music origins/history. So I doubt you'll be interested in the new school/modern renditions.

I would stick with classical, baroque, jazz, maybe some bossa nova. Anything instrumental is always good for studying. Instrumental is much less distracting than actual lyrics.

Tinarawen

Ali Farka Toure & Toumani Diabate

Taraf de Haidouks

Ravi Shankar and Andre Previn

Afro Cuban All Stars

Hope those help you out some. I know those recordings should be fairly easy to find.

And of course, you should always have The Chieftains if you're looking for Irish stuff.

And here's some other random vids just cause I feel like posting.

Ray Barreto

Louis Armstrong

My history teacher showed me some Johnny Clegg (South African) which I loved, but it's got a lot of vocals.
