2017-06-09 Songs of Asian Cities

ulan bator, mongoliaMusic from and about Kabul, Kyoto, Karachi, and other cities in Asia this week in the third installment of STG’s cities playlists. Plus new releases and whatnot in the second hour of the show.

Note: You may have noticed that I wasn’t in for a fresh episode of STG last week. Threats of violence closed the Evergreen campus — including KAOS — and while a few intrepid KAOS staffers kept the station on-air, everyone else was instructed to stay away. Here’s hoping the threats come to nothing and the threateners are dealt with appropriately.

2010-10-08: Music of South Asia

Where, exactly, is South Asia? According to the UN, it encompasses Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burma, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. It’s the most densely populated region of the world, and it’s culturally and musically diverse. We explored that diversity this week on Spin The Globe, then threw in a few new releases and show previews. Congratulations to the winner of our on-air giveaway for the new Alpha Yaya Diallo album Imme!South Asia
