Since 1996, during the height of the Provençal summer, the beautiful, historic city of Arles has hosted the Festival Les Suds <0x2014> a joyous musical alchemy that combines singing, music and dance and both explores and redefines the cultural heart of southern Europe (and beyond). Over the course of a week, music from around the world resounds like a universal language. This deluxe, greatest hits package from World Village features highlights recorded over the festival's last decade. Featuring one CD and one DVD, the set includes tracks by 25 artists, ranging from Cuban jazzman Omar Sosa to world artists Ballaké Sissoko and Houria Aïchi. As a special bonus, the superb clamshell box and detailed 72-page booklet were "dressed" by designer Christian Lacroix, one of the most famous residents of Arles.
