World Audio Foundation: Soul Jazz launches new label

London based Soul Jazz Records have launched a new label focusing on "roots-based deep, spiritual music from the four corners of the world". The first two albums on World Audio Foundation have already been released. Polyphonic Voices Of Georgia, recorded with the Anchiskhati Choir in Tbilisi documents the ancient polyphonic chants sung during Georgian Orthodox liturgical services, recognised by UNESCO as an Oral and Intangible Masterpiece of Humanity; Carnival Music Of Eastern Cuba is comprised of recordings of Conga De Los Hoyos, a carnival group active since 1902 which is made up of over 50 percussionists and singers local to the Santiago neighbourhood of Los Hoyos.
