I don't have a favorite particular artist. Just a couple of putumayo compilation CDs that I've been playing in rotation a lot.

I&#39;m a big fan of j-rock and especially visual kei, i.e. Malice Mizer, Dir En Grey, and Gackt.
I also like female j-pop vocalists like Akino Arai, Ayumi Hamasaki, and Takako Minekawa.

In addition to all of the African artists mentioned, I&#39;m a huge huge huge fan of middle eastern and indian classical music. Uh, also on the fusion tip, I saw a band called Gotan Project and they were a-m-a-z-i-n-g. They combine french folk music and argentenian tango music with beats from a DJ/Programmer. Kinda hard to describe. When I just heard a few songs I thought they were cool but when I saw them live I was completely blown away.

I don&#39;t know her name, even though I have a smooth R&B Cd with her on it. She sangs: Say How I Feel. she&#39;s from Africa, and has really good music. I also like Ms. Dynamite, K-OS, and Les Nubians.

Lebanese Lounge...

Currently building up my world music collection... it&#39;s just starting. Can anyone recommend some good African music? (and yes I know there are many different african cultures, but any would be good)

I have satellite and I get a channel called Worldink that plays music videos from around the world. Many of the previously mentioned artists here are played on that channel. Anyone else get this channel?
