Show Notes: South
Africa has been in the news recently, from their winning bid to host the
2010 FIFA World Cup ("I want to go outside and dance, man" responded
Archbishop Desmond Tutu) to Nelson Mandela's retirement from public life
the 10th anniversary
of the country's first inclusive election. South Africans have good reason
to celebrate, and we joined them, playing music from great South African
artists. We also spoke with members of the band Pangia, in Olympia for a
bellydancing concert tonight. And we ended with a tribute to Amazigh singer
Matoub, who was assassinated in Algeria on June 15, 1998.
Our cover song of the week took the week off.
