This week, a countdown of the top 10 global / world-music albums of the month, including klezmer, Afrobeat, dueling harps, Ethiopian reggae via Israel, Bollywood via Australia, and more. Plus other new releases in hour 2.
STG also bids a fond farewell to Cover The Earth, a show that ran on KAOS for 18 years, and came to a graceful conclusion this weekend. Hosts Juli and Duncan were instrumental in selling me on the wonders of community radio, and starting Spin The Globe, which now becomes KAOS’s longest-running global music show at 15 years. I’m looking forward to hearing Juli now and then on Xenophilia — and probably also on Spin The Globe from time to time.
