Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 30 January 2009
Asian music for the Year of the Ox


Happy Year of the Ox! To celebrate the Lunar New Year, we heard music from all over Asia in the first hour. A little Asian music trickled into hour 2, along with other global sounds. And yes, I had a hankerin' for qawwali today.


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.
