2014-03-28 Pre-milennial World Music

Harry-Belafonte-and-Miriam-MakebaLooking at recent STG playlists, I noticed that much of the music played was recorded in the last 15 years. Time for us to set the wayback machine to pre-2000, and see what the last millennium sounded like. Music from the 1960s to the 1990s from around the planet in the first hour; new releases and concert previews in the second hour.

2014-02-21 World Music in English – Global Sounds for the Monoglot

Feb. 21 Mother LanguageToday is UN International Mother Language Day, and we celebrated with global music in my mother language, English.
