This Island Earth
Sunday February 10th, 2013 with Alnoor Allidina
The 3rd Annual Awards Show Show

Today, we look at the world music nominees (and winners) of the following prizes: The ARIAs (Australia), Les Victoires De La Musique (France), and the Grammy's (USA).
Let's get meta this year: whose nominees are the strongest? Vote using the interactive feature on the playlist.

We begin with the world music nominees for the 26th ARIA (Australian Recorded Music Association) Awards. The ceremony happened this past November and the prize was awarded to oud player Joseph Tawadros for his album Concerto of the Great Sea. Of course, this was the one album I couldn't lay my hands on. Instead, we'll hear from a couple of his other albums.

My verdict so far: Australians sure like their synths.

It's official: Joseph Tawadros will be making future appearances on the show. Killer oud.

1:55 PM, February 10th, 2013
Alnoor Allidina (host)
Salif's still got it!

2:45 PM, February 10th, 2013
Vincent
who was the artist that you played at 3:30. They're good.

3:52 PM, February 10th, 2013
Alnoor Allidina (host)
Hey Vincent! 3:30 was either the second Hugh Masekela piece or the first Anoushka Shankar piece.

11:41 PM, February 10th, 2013
Alnoor Allidina (host)
Ravi Shankar took the Grammy!

1:29 PM, February 11th, 2013
Alnoor Allidina (host)
Actually, on second listen that Dead Can Dance track is pretty groovy.

Yeah, good to hear DCD back again. Been a long while. I did not know they originated in Oz! Just up to about half way On Demand ... Think into the Salif Keita. Looking forward to more Anoushka -- only caught about last half of last tune when the show was live.

Since i know you (Alnoor) are a fellow A-1 nerd boy. ;^) Feature request, which i know is probably impossible. It would be swell if the playlist and/or On Demand was indexed / time stamped somehow. Often pretty hard to follow along.

11:58 AM, February 15th, 2013
Alnoor Allidina (host)
That would be cool. I'm not sure how we would do that, but I'll see if Colin has any ideas.
