2013-03-08 International Women’s Day

Mamy WataWe celebrate UN International Womens Day with music from women across the globe, from South Africa to France, Bulgaria to Palestine, and beyond. To some extent, I steered clear of the well-known names of world music, and tried to highlight some younger and less-well-know musicians. Hope you find things here to enjoy, and to prompt you to find out more about the artists. Women: Can’t live without ’em, wouldn’t want to.

I love to hear from listeners when I’m on the air, and when I’m not, I’d love to hear from you via the website or Facebook page, where you can also get your free Daily Spin:  http://facebook.com/spintheglobe

2011-03-11 African Women

Rokia TraoreFollowing up last week’s show on Miriam Makeba, we’ll use the appearance this weekend of Khaira Arby (with The Sway Machinery) and this week’s International Women’s Day as an excuse to spin a range of other African women making wonderful music. I tried to stick to mostly less well known artists, so I hope you find a few new discoveries for yourself in this show, and dig a little deeper.

Remember, you can catch the archive of this show for a limited time at http://soundroots.podomatic.com
