The globo-pop sampler Nomad Christmas: A World Music Celebration covers the spectrum from a fern-bar rendition of ”Greensleeves” to Arab lutist Simon Shaheen’s spectral ”God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen.” The best act is Duofel, an acoustic guitar duo who make ”Jingle Bells Brazil” more than schlock novelty; the worst is Tarun Bhattacharya, whose zitherlike santur turns trad carols into music to buy plastic Christmas trees by.
