AllMusic Review by

The Rough Guide to World Music is a sampler of sounds from across the globe -- for newcomers to the complexities of worldbeat, it's an ideal way to taste-test the endless flavors the genre has to offer. Highlights include Buckwheat Zydeco's "Hot Tamale Baby," Oumou Sangare's "Dugu Kamelenba" and Etoile de Dakar's "Zaiko Wa Wa."
