This Island Earth
Sunday May 3rd, 2015 with Manmohan Panesar
Mix of old and new tunes

Welcome to TIE, CKCU's weekly program featuring sounds from around the globe. Today the program will highlight mainly new releases from smaller record labels, as well as present some older tracks. We'll start off with The Internationale as an ode to workers on the front line who fight to make the world a better place for all (May Day the International Workers Day was celebrated on Friday May 1). From there we'll move to new releases from a couple of hot new compilations of African Musics. Drop me a line if you have any questions or comments. Enjoy!
After The Internationale, and a funky jazz piece from Detroit, a new compilation of pan-African compilation albums that is simply outstanding. I have selected tracks from Nigeria, Minneapolis (yes indeed) and Mali.
