We counted down the best new global sounds from the July Spin The Globe / SoundRoots Top 10 chart this week, with a break in the middle for a fascinating conversation with guitarist Leni Stern, who has recently found a great groove in collaborating with West African musicians. She’s currently on tour as well.

If you’re around the Olympia area this weekend, be sure to drop by the KAOS booth at Lakefair. I’ll be down there this afternoon, and would love to talk with you about global music. Or drop me a line here with any show comments or suggestions.

Finally, a happy Ramadan to all my Muslim friends and listeners!
