Show Notes

Mercan Dede is a Canada-based Sufi musician who blends traditional Sufi music with electronica. He was interviewed on Spin the Globe 23 July 2004, and recently appeared at the Seattle International Children's Festival.

The Vancouver-based Orchid Ensemble blends ancient musical instruments and traditions from China and beyond, creating a beautiful new sound that is both creative and distinct.

Spin the Globe headed north today, Canada Day, for a listen to its multicultural sounds. Home to artists including autorickshaw, Asza, the Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band, Mercan Dede, Opiyo Oloya, Joseph "Pepe" Danza, Uzume Taiko, and Orchid Ensemble, as well as many native/Inuit/First Nations artists, Canada has a truly diverse sound. (Apologies to the listener who requested Nickelback - no sign of them in the KAOS music library!)
See Spin the Globe's CD Reviews for reviews and info on new releases. Most of the music played on Spin the Globe is available on CD at cdRoots.com or CD Universe or via mp3 downloads at the Calabash.
