Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 7 November 2008
music of the Central African pygmies and others they've inspired


Baka Beyond perform here in Olympia Nov. 8, so we heard some of their music, plus some of the Baka pygmy music that inspires the Afro side of Baka's Afro-Celtic sound, along with other pygmy-inspired tunes, new releases, and an Obama praise song.


Our limited-time show archives are now located on the blog SoundRoots.org -- along with lots of other great global music and information.

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 Calabash.
