Show Notes:
This week's show featured various styles of throat singing. Throat singing (or overtone, or multitone, or harmonic singing) is the practice of using the natural resonance of your throat and mouth to create two or more audible notes, from low growls to high whistles. This musical tradition emerged in Central Asia as well as with the Inuit. To learn more about throat singing and hear some mp3 samples, click here!

# Our cover song of the week was something different for Spin the Globe: a cover of a classical piece. It's from the new CD "Classic Meets Cuba" - a collaboration between the German Klazz Brothers and two Cuban percussionists. The idea of such hybrids is often more enticing than the music itself, but this CD is the exception. They don't try too hard, leaving some parts almost pure classical while others are great conga-driven dance interpretations of well-known classics. This song is a cover of Beethoven's 5th.
