Putumayo


2003年非典期间,因为无聊,便在网上下载歌曲听。那阵子周围有几个人都喜欢听世界各地非英语国家的音乐。这类音乐很难归类,反正我不喜欢“世界音乐”这种说法。这种说法曾遭到过不少第三世界国家音乐家的反对。“世界音乐”是美国人在唱片店里给音乐分类时的说法,而不是描述音乐特征的说法。“世界音乐”的潜台词叫“非我族类音乐”。

当时日本King Records公司出过一套世界各地民族音乐的唱片,纯粹原生态,没有任何修饰,我在网上下载了几张专辑后便喜欢上了。在北京进入非典最恐怖时期的那几天,我在家憋得实在太难受了,决定出去转转。我打车一路畅通飞奔到王府井,当时还有家音像店,想买些唱片回家听。结果我发现了全套的King公司的民族音乐唱片,2900块钱,我毫不犹豫就要掏钱买。负责导购的小伙子觉得很奇怪,这套唱片放在店里好几个月了,据他说北京音乐台买走一套,剩下这套上面都落灰了,也没人过问。见我这么痛快想买唱片,便告诉我,最好跟代理这套唱片的负责人联系,也许会便宜点。最后我跟风潮唱片公司的人联系上,便宜了两百多拿下这套唱片。

当时,还有两个系列的唱片我非常喜欢,一个是Putumayo系列,一个是the Rough Guide to系列,这两个系列都是以出版第三世界国家的音乐为主。Putumayo是一个专门做世界民族服饰的老板Dan Storper在1993年开的唱片公司,到2003年,他们出版了106张专辑,音乐涵盖了世界各地,他们对音乐的选择有两条:好听且富有节奏感,要让人一听就高兴。这和King公司的纯野生无污染的音乐形成鲜明对照。当然,我喜欢的另一个系列the Rough Guide to介于Putumayo和King之间。

Putumayo的唱片主要以拼盘为主,个人专辑只出过十几张。

遗憾的是,Putumayo系列没有被引进到国内,有时候偶尔能在音像店里看到盗版唱片。2013年Putumayo唱片公司成立20周年,20年间,Putumayo出版了除中国和南极洲之外世界各个国家的音乐唱片326张。为什么没有中国音乐?我想,按照Dan Storper选择音乐的标准,中国音乐既不好听,也没有节奏感,尤其是不符合他对“快乐音乐”的要求。

在这326张专辑中,我费尽九牛二虎之力,搞到了其中的320张,还有那么几张没有找到,估计是绝版了。这对于一个有强迫症的人来说心里是很不爽的。

这里尤其要提一下的是Putumayo系列唱片的设计者Nicola Heindl,她几乎包办了Putumayo所有唱片的封面设计,这让这个系列的唱片显得与众不同。在众多的唱片中,你会一眼就能辨认出它属于Putumayo。
