Edith Musicbox's insight:

A MUST LISTEN!

 

Once upon a time, Stuart wanted to learn more about the "proliferation" of Western influences on popular music from Africa, the Middle East, India and Asia - with a focus on sources from the mid 1960s to the mid 1970s. The original idea - to fulfill something he could share - was not that clear. He started his quest by collecting hundreds of rare songs, slowly slowly. The surrealistic prices of the original vinyl recordings given by the Western dealers invited him to track down records from sellers all over the world and contact the non-insane sources. As a chronic buyer juggling with the time zones, record dealers got used to e-mail him before they list their records on line. In 2005, he started posting songs on his website - a kind of a "looky-what-I-got-here" sort of thing. 

He thought at the beginning "who care about this stuff?", but apparently there are more than a few people who did... He makes us happy! Furthermore inadvertently, thanks to his initiative, he made contact with those "who put out some of the compilations that helped start this insanity in the first place" and shares since a while the benefits of their kept treasures. 

Now as templates do exist to make his on line process easier and after much pestering and prodding due to technical issues, Stuart keeps on gathering all his posts on Radiodiffusion Internasionaal Annexe. Let's travel!

"I've never really had a plan when I started this. Still have no clue what I am doing... I've even had friends try to talk me out it. But April 2008 saw the release of the Bollywood Steel Guitar compilation that I assembled for Sublime Frequencies, which happened practically by accident. Then in 2011, Pakistan ⋆ Folk and Pop Instrumentals 1966 - 1976 was released. Will there be more projects? Who knows?"

Wine-bearer, brighten our cup with the light of wine,
Songstress, say what we accomplished that was longed for in this world!
O, he who knows not our eternal enjoyment of wine,
In the winecup, we saw reflected the face of the beloved!
Eternal is the one in whose heart lives love,
Our eternal existence is written in the Book of the World.
How much coquetry from the shapely beauties
Would it take to arouse our cypress-figured one?
O, wind, if you pass through the friendly blossoms,
Don’t fail to give our message to the beloved.
Intoxication is good in the eye of our beloved,
And so our fate was dedicated to intoxication.
A tulip stole my heart away like a cypress tree,
O, bird of fortune, when, at last, will we tame you?
Hafiz, scatter the seeds of tears from your eyes,
May the bird of fate be lured by that bait.

This comprehensive selection of Rajasthani folk songs, oral epics, and genealogy, drawn from the archives of the Rupayan Sansthan, represents the sheer vitality of Rajasthan's diverse musical traditions and instrumentation. While these musical excerpts can be enjoyed in their own right, the listener can consult Rustom Bharchucha's book, "Rajasthan- An Oral History: Coversations with Komal Kothari" (New Dehli: Penguin India, 2003) for a more detailed background on the social, ritual, and caste dimensions of these musical traditions. Specific references to the book are included in the following notes.
Edith Musicbox's insight:
❖ Gems from Rupayan Sansthan's archives. "In this journey, there are excerpts from 3 different versions of the Pabuji epic, drawing on the acoustic and rhythmic differences between the ravanhattha, the mata and the gujari. In addition to landmarks in the Rajasthani folk song repertoire -Gorbandh, Hicaki Kurjan and Nimbuda- the musical selections are punctuated with brief snatches of oral genealogy an panegyric verses. Along with group singing, there are striking examples of solo renditions by women singers, ranging from the quasi-classical style go Allah Jilahi Bai and the robust Manghaniyar singing of Rukma Bai, punctuated by the dhol, to the unaccompanied voices of nomadic Kalbelya women singing in the wilderness of the desert." Rustom Bharucha, "Rajasthan: an oral history. Conversations with Komal Kothari", 2003
