About Playlist

The World Circuit label has built its reputation by producing some of the most important world albums of the past 20 years, specializing in Cuban and West African music. The label is best known for the Buena Vista Social Club album, the best-selling world album of all time that has led to a phenomenal wave of popularity of Cuban music. The Buena Vista series continues with solo albums by Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara Portuondo, Rubén González, Guajiro Mirabal and innovative albums by Cachaíto López and Angá Díaz, which bring Cuban music into the new millennium. Ten years later, the Buena Vista Social Club plays at Carnegie Hall in New York, a legendary concert recorded by World Circuit in October 2008.

The African artists of World Circuit enjoy an equally important prestige with the Malian bluesman Ali Farka Touré and his album Talking Timbuktu recorded with Ry Cooder, which brings international recognition to the label. Malian diva Oumou Sangare, the legendary Orchestra Baobab and Senegalese dissident Cheikh Lô have emerged as major stars in Africa and around the world. World Circuit's beautiful Hotel Mandé Sessions generated incredible praise as well as the album of Ali Farka Touré's duo and virtuoso kora player Toumani Diabaté, the pan-African Symmetric Orchestra and Ali Farka Touré's posthumous solo recordings, Savane. World Circuit thus sets a standard through its beautifully produced albums of the highest quality.
