Founded in 2003 by Alan Bishop, Hisham Mayet and Richard Bishop, Sublime
Frequencies has become a benchmark in the exploration of popular and folk
music from parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Deliberately avoiding
traditional ethnomusicology and academic approaches, they never lose sight
of their mission to rescue music and sounds that would otherwise very
likely be destined to be forgotten. They work with a highly varied
repertoire that ranges from regional radio broadcasts to field recordings,
folk compilations and pop and documentary video/film.

*Mark Gergis*, a regular collaborator with Sublime Frequencies, explains
the project's philosophy and the cultural, logistical and esoteric
implications of collecting music from a culture other than one's own.
