Show Notes


Hazmat Modine with Huun Huur Tu: "It Calls Me"

"I am the root and the trunk, all they have is the branches and the leaves."
- Ali Farka Toure, speaking of American blues music

The blues may have grown up in the USA, but they were born in Africa. We'll hear music from the roots, plus the blues diaspora from Sweden to Tuva to New York City. Plus, we tossed in a new unreleased soccer/football tune from Jim Malcolm, since the World Cup began today.

Hear this show for the next week on the Listen page.

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.
