Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 12 December 2008
New Releases, + Old Faves


We wandered freely between cultures and between old and new music on this week's show. And apparently the mix worked, judging by the way the phone was ringing off the hook. The Balkan/klezmer set at the top of hour 2 particularly seemed to get listeners' attention, as did the wonderful song by Faraualla.


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.
