Show Notes


U Myint Maung & Daw Yi Yi Thant (Myanmar):
"Shun Shun Mya"

"I have discovered that all human evil comes from this, man's being unable to sit still in a room."
-Blaise Pascal

Back in 2004, Spin The Globe had a special on the music of the Axis of Evil. Since then, the Bush administration has changed and expanded its list of nations that harbor terrorists, coddle tyranny, or are just plain "anti-American." As far as we can tell, the current list includes Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Belarus, Zimbabwe, Myanmar (Burma), Syria, and Palestine. So we'll hear music from many of these, and explore the less "evil" aspects of their cultures.

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.
