Show Notes


Baaba Maal: "Missing You (Mi Yeewnii)"
Bendabe Suka: "Doni Suka"

The loveliest faces are to be seen by moonlight, when one sees half with the eye and half with the fancy.
Persian proverb

Something of a musical celebration of the moon and the lunar new year, which Muslims, Chinese, and others traditionally set their calendars. Plus new releases, requests, and previews of upcoming shows in the region. Listeners seemed particularly interested in Lura (Cape Verde) and Marta Topferova (Czech singer, Latin music). And we shared several tracks mixing classical European music with Cuban and African music. Happy birthday this week to Alan Lomax and Mozart. And Happy Lunar New Year!
