Gaby Kerpel: Carnabailito [Nonesuch, 2003]
Structurally and emotionally, this soundtrack sans movie recalls Another Green World, only without Eno's unifying vocals or cute tunes. What you go back for are the instruments from South America and samples from anywhere, the same stuff the Latin Playboys and Manu Chao play as raw materials to provide atmosphere and context. Here, the vocals and tunes--even the songs per se--are window dressing. Kind of.
