2011-02-11: World Music Top 10 (plus more Egypt!)

It’s not every day you wake up to a revolution. Though halfway across the world, the events in Egypt are no less thrilling and fascinating to all who stand with the people against undemocratic, unrepresentative rule. May the people of Egypt (and elsewhere) find a smooth transition to something better. The whole world will be the better for it.

We started the music today with Nubian grooving, then launched into a countdown of the ten best new global releases, from #10 AfroCubism to #1 Yemen Blues. Other fun followed in the second hour, from Irish by request to more Egyptian music and a preview of the new Pena Vol. 2 album. Enjoy!
