Spin the Globe World Music

Spin the Globe Playlist for 27 November 2009
Top 10 World Music CDs, November 2009


This is our last top 10 show of 2009, before our roundup of all the best releases of the year on January 1. We went from West Africa to Eastern Europe (twice!) with stops in the USA, Georgia, South Africa, and Ethiopia.

Special surprises in hour 2 include Italian and Sardinian music with tones of elsewhere, and a tasty tune from Madagascar's Kilema.


Our limited-time show archives are now available via the global music 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.
