Favourite recordings of other "classical" or folk traditions.

As a counterpart to "Your top favourite (western classical) works of all time" Here we can discuss non-western "classical" traditions and folk traditions from all over the world.

I'm not well versed at all in this topic so your collaboration will be much appreciated. I do however return to some recordings that used to be on YouTube of Balinese Gamelan and Japanese Gagaku every once in a while.

Both are on Youtube.

Actually, too many Savall discs to list --- when it comes to non-Western "classical" music he's unbeatable.

These are also very good:



Finally, something which might be surprising to many:



"Beauty must appeal to the senses, must provide us with immediate enjoyment, must impress us or insinuate itself into us without any effort on our part."

Savall's Istanbul and Balkan Spirit would absolutely make my list. Truly spectacular. My Turkish mom approves too, considers Istanbul in particular to be totally amazing.
