Amira Kheir - Mystic Dance

Thanks for another great year of spinning the globe — I’m grateful to the listeners who travel this strange but wonderful path with me, and KAOS Community Radio for making it all possible for the past 20 years. It’s such a joy to do shows like this one, for which I sifted through hundreds of 2018 releases to find you some of the best listening of the year. I hope you’ll hear some favorites — or find some new discoveries to dig into.
