Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 9 January 2009
The Music of Yugoslavia (and offspring nations)


Some of my favorite music comes from a country that no longer exists. I visited Yugoslavia in the 1980s, and today the music is more exciting than ever, though you need more names for the place: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia.



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.
