 Diwali Celebration of Light
Deepavali Traditional Diwali Celebration Diya

Oct. 27 is Diwali, the celebration of lights observed by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, some Buddhists, and some who just love light. So we hear songs about light, along with other global tunes.

Note: The playlist is a bit shorter this week, because between songs we asked for your support of KAOS Community Radio. If you’re not already a KAOS member, click that link and get it done! Thanks!
