Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 5 December 2008
World Music of Slavery


Sandwiched between two related observations -- The International Day for the Abolition of Slavery Dec. 2 and International Human Rights Day Dec. 10 -- this week's show focused on the music of slavery in hour 1. Included were some facts about contemporary slavery -- which still exists, yes! See 10 Shocking Facts about Slavery in 2008. Hour 2 wandered more globally, and hit some new world music releases.


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.
