Top 10 Albums of 2023 – Natalie Shrewsbury’s Picks

All these albums easily could equally be placed #1 of the top ten- I love to choose music that is collaborative, cross cultural and reflects old time-new time and indigenous roots. Sometimes the sounds are unfamiliar, or weird to our ears- yet, the experience broadens our curiosity and understanding of cultures.
