As part of their project of creating top 100 album lists for a number of music categories, Amazon has just posted its list of the 100 Greatest World Music Albums of All Time. Heading the list is the album “Wátina” by Andy Palacio and the Garifuna Collective. In a release, Ivan Duran said, “The list features amazing artists from around the world including legendary icons such as Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Celia Cruz, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Tito Puente, Youssou N’Dour, Peter Tosh, Ravi Shankar among others. Congrats Andy! You continue to be an inspiration for many of us.”

The list includes a number of other Caribbean basin albums: The Buena Vista Social Club (10), Bob Marley’s Catch a Fire (11), Jamaica’s King Tubby (13), and Tito Puente’s Dance Mania (28) are among the top 30.
