Tinariwen - Live at Womad

Enjoy an hour of Tinariwen, a 30 year old band who just won a Grammy last year for best World music album. Like some of the best musicians in history they have taken the blues (war, strife, struggle and homelessness) and turned it into groovy music for all to enjoy. MadChange. Tinariwen is a band ofTuareg-Berber musicians from the Sahara Desert region of northern Mali. The band was formed around 1979 in refugee camps in Libya but returned to Mali after a cease-fire in the 1990s. The group first started to gain a following outside the Sahara region in 2001, with the release of The Radio Tisdas Sessions.

Music With Changing Parts (1970) - Philip Glass

Die Sinfonie der GroƟstadt - 1927 German silent film directed by Walter Ruttmann

I have discovered that on top of this movie being a masterpiece it also goes with a ton of good soundtracks of your choosing. Apparently it is 12 seconds off from Phillip Glass's piece presented here. I found psychedelic music works with it best.
