6- Henri Tournier.
When French flutist Henri Tournier discovered music from India in 1982, he focused mainly on the east. Van Tournier, who also teaches at the Rotterdam Conservatory, released an album on which he plays various flutes: from piccolo to bass, but the Indian bansuri is close to his heart. You will not only hear the flute here, but also the voice of singers from Mongolia, Pakistan, Japan, Iran, France, Tunisia, India and Afghanistan. The combination of Mongolian overtone singing and alto and double bass flute is fascinating. All in all an interesting world music document. Cd. Souffles du Monde – Henri Tournier.

7- Per Störby Jutbring.
The title track of Per Störby Jutbring’s latest album, The Thief Bunny Society, has all the light, playful yet imagination of great childhood fantasy movies, the kind that don’t get through and stay fun during adulthood. With piano, strings, clarinet and electronics, Jutbring brings a sense of openness and freedom to adventures to look forward to. A magically animated video, directed and animated by Per Störby himself, is a work of art in itself.Cd. The Thief Bunny Society – Per Störby Jutbring. Label: HOOB records (2019) | VIDEO
8- Astor Piazzolla – Le Voyage de Noces.
Argentinian tango musician, bandoneonist and composer. His new tango approach renewed the Tango.
