Various Artists – Rudolstadt Festival 2016 (Heideck, 2016)
You can catch up with the latest in world music acts with this double CD compilation from Germany’s Rudolstadt Festival. This compilation features artists from various countries that appeared in the 2016 edition of the festival.
Rudolstadt Festival is one of the most significant world music festivals in Europe.
Stylistically, the artists range from traditional to contemporary forms of world music. The album comes nicely packaged in a hard cover digibook with liner notes in German and English.
