Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 8 August 2008
Music of China & Tibet ++


Music of China and Tibet to mark the opening of the Olympics and the various complexities surrounding the games. A special shout out to the members of Team Darfur, particularly those who found their visas for China revoked and themselves thereby banned from the games because of their principled stand in favor of human rights in Sudan.
