This incredible mix will take you round the world in 57 minutes

In February this year French DJ/producer Sam Tiba was granted full access to the archives of Parisian museum Quai Branly, famous for its extensive collection of indigenous art from all over the world. Over four months Tiba explored the “tens of thousands of amazing traditional music cds from every country in the world” to put together this “weird and mental mix, with bits from Mongolia, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Bulgaria, Argentina, Japan, Iran, Korea, Israel, etc.” The result is an entirely transportive, thrilling sonic adventure: glimpses of faraway places and places, sonic postcards from times past, and a celebration of the universal, uniting power of music.
