Rupa and the April Fishers - Este Mundo (This World) (4 stars)

Rupa and the April Fishers - Este Mundo (This World)

With their second album, Rupa and the April Fishers establish themselves at the cutting edge of world music. Their unusual name, top-quality musicianship and linguistic versatility, fused by the eclectic ideas of a second generation brought up on world music, see them creatively pastiche a host of styles.

In the weave and weft of this attractive album dedicated to the plight of all those forced to migrate for work, oldies might hear a clever cocktail that references the voice of Lhasa de Sela, French musette, mariachi, klezmer, jackdaw attitudes forged by Manu Chao, Los de Abajo, Amparanoia and much more. An ingenious mix.
