2013-05-31 World Music in the 1980s

1980s global music sowetoThe first in a series of STG shows highlighting the world-music sounds of different decades. The 80s were when I really began discovering global sounds, so the show includes some of my early favorites plus many 80s artists & songs I’ve discovered since.
