FAVOURITE listens of 2016 and a Tribute to the late William Onyeabor

Welcome to THIS ISLAND EARTH, CKCU's world music program, broadcast every Sunday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. EST. Stay with us this afternoon (Sunday 1-4pm) at CKCU 93.1 FM in the greater Ottawa area or at from anywhere around the world. I'll be presenting my favourite 'world' music listens of the year 2016. We'll also feature a tribute to William Onyeabor, the Nigerian electronic pioneer, who passed away earlier in the week. Along with the music of Onyeabor, expect to hear fantastic recordings released in 2016, including music from Malawi, Haiti, Brazil, Cabo Verde, Mauritius, Niger, Mali, Romania, India, Cuba and the Middle East.
