"There have been moments in pop history when you can depend upon a label to buy a record blind. Atlantic had it, Motown had it for a while, and World Circuit has it at the moment" - Charlie Gillett, Billboard

World Circuit celebrate twenty years of recording with the release of this 29 track, 2CD collection. From the Buena Vista Social Club to Ali Farka Touré via Ibrahim Ferrer and Rubén González, 'World Circuit Presents...' is packed with classic performances from all our top artists: Orchestra Baobab, Toumani Diabaté, Omara Portuondo, Oumou Sangare, Cheikh Lô... the list goes on!

Yet the album also sheds light on lesser known aspects aspects of World Circuit's output. Digging deep into our vaults, we've uncovered half-forgotten masterpieces and previously-unheard live performances, great songs from long-unavailable albums and material from 'pending projects' whose time has now definitively come. From the Buena Vista anthem 'Chan Chan' to hard-core Moroccan trance grooves straight from the dusty boxes in our archive, 'World Circuit Presents...' offers a kind of informal secret history of the best-known world music label.
