A Lesson in Asian Music

This is a wonderful compilation with forty-seven songs spanning across cultures and political boundaries of Asia. You'll get a good idea of many different types of music with many different instruments, styles, and voices. It's really best to buy the whole album, especially since some of the best tracks are "album only". However, if you choose to buy the album in its entirety, I would advise purchasing the hard copy, as it has a booklet overflowing with introductions, information about each song, and even instrument indexes. It can be purchased online or at Barnes & Noble. My personal favorite track is "Balbyraun", but if you can only buy one track on iTunes, I would recommend "Mahur" or "Masq-e Javanan".

An Ethnomusicological Journey

This is the Ultimate Asia Sampler, from the rooftops of Mongolia to the deserts of Afghanistan... Yo-Yo Ma''s album seamlessly weaves a wide spectrum of early traditional styles of music into a storyline that is at once deeply invoking and infinitely expanding to the western ear, with excellent sound quality no less. I checked this double-CD out from the library over a decade ago... and so, if you also have an affinity toward early folk and indigenous music... then i give you fair Warning: these songs may lead you into an ethnomusicological (congrats if you can pronounce that) journey for years to come. mr. Ma has compiled an extraordinary Introduction to the Old Asia.
