The cover will tell you music for films and documentaries. What it won't tell you is how varied the textures are; nor how varied the influences. In many ways this is cinematic world music, ranging from the orchestral to the minimalist to a sort of ambient. Very well done, the hat tip this time goes to Mr. Philip Graham. :-) (bandcamp)

I'm slowly making my way through the treasures of Michel Banabila's discography. This album displays his evocative music for film. And one added bonus: several tracks feature, besides guitars, electronics and fretless bass, the wonderfully expressive violin of Salar Asid. Sandhya Sanjana makes a very cool vocal appearance too. Favorite track: Bicycle Exotica. (bandcamp)
