Spin the Globe Playlist for 27 August 2004
* = Specific listener request/response

World Music Guitar Heroes + a few new releases

Show Notes:
This week Spin the Globe focused on the ubiquitous guitar, that amazing instrument that, more than any other, has the ability to reflect the culture of the person playing it. From mbira style to slack key, gypsy flamenco to Safrojazz, we heard a great variety of guitar from some stellar strummers. We also spoke with Jessica Breznau, organizer of the All Nations Cup soccer tournament, about this Sunday's final matches.

Most of the music played on Spin the Globe is available at cdRoots.com or CD Universe or the calabash.
