Show Notes


"Under a Dim Red Moon" (field recordings from China - 2 hours long!)

"A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song."
-Chinese proverb

Music from all over Asia in the first hour today, from Tibet, China, Japan, Indonesia, India... Well, you get the idea. The second hour included some upcoming show previews and a boatload of new releases. Plus a preview of two upcoming releases: Quetzal's Die Cowboy Die, and the self-titled solo debut by Vieux Farka Toure, son of the late Ali Farka Toure.

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.
