Show Notes: Tying to distill a show on "world vocals" from the vast array of available music demonstrates the absurd riches of music humanity has to offer. From the joik singing of the indigenous Nordic people to the growling of souther Africa's Mahlathini and Dr. Hukwe Zawose, to the nimble speed of Brasil and Company.... One can't hope to do the world justice in a mere two hours, but it's possible to show listeners the tip of the iceberg. Callers seemed especially interested in the variety of throat-singing techniques during the set I played from Tuva, Finland, and the US. Maybe that would make a good future show theme all by itself.
