Music from the Hottest Places on Earth

As a mid-winter break for those of us in the northern climes, we took a musical visit to the hottest places on the planet this week. You can find a list complete with temperatures here.

New Releases & Old Faves

This week: new world music releases, and some of our favorite older tunes. Sorry I wasn’t able to fulfill the request of the caller asking for Inuit women’s throat singing–there wasn’t any to be found in the KAOS music library. Will get to that in a future show.

Also, please note that I’ll be on vacation next week and the show will be hosted by David Moseley, the regular host of KAOS’s Xenophilia show. If possible, I’ll post the archive of that show after I return from my journey. And I’ll be back with you on January 22 for a show featuring music from hot lands.
