Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 31 July 2009
Music of Arab Nations


Music from the ten countries with the largest Arab populations in hour 1 (but not necessarily Arabic music...) in anticipation of this weekend's Arab Festival at the Seattle Center. Plus new releases and more in hour 2.



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.
