2012-05-11 Global Wedding Music

wedding henna handsPrompted by a request from listener Annette in Munich, Germany (and the upcoming nuptials of my own nephew), I’ve rounded up a marital bliss of wedding songs from Lapland, South Africa, the Balkans, and beyond. For all of you getting married, staying married, or contemplating marriage, may this show give you some inspiration — and reasons to dance. Oh, and feel free to invite me to your wedding, particularly if your ceremony is in some fascinating exotic location.
