Eclectic and Electric New Releases from the world of 'World Music'

Welcome to another addition of THIS ISLAND EARTH, CKCU's weekly program (Sunday 1-4 pm) dedicated to great music from all over the globe. This week we feature mainly new releases that have caught me ear and we'll start off with a new release from the legendary Angolan artist, Bonga. From there we branch off far and wide and feature pieces from Brazil, the U.S. Southwest, Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago, Syria, Egypt, Italy, France, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Finland, Mali, Gambia, Burkina Faso, etc. and will draw on a couple of new and exciting compilation albums. I welcome you to drop me a line on the right hand side of the screen. Enjoy!

Hello Manmohan, Listening in while getting tax papers together -- Yes, T.I.E. is great to have on while doing all those chores that are somewhat boring but necessary. Really enjoying the show this afternoon.

Woah! That Real Rio recording sounds fantastic. Will have to look into it. I just love 30 track comps.... Sitting on the back porch in the sun and a light jacket, watching the squirrels 'bask' in the sun, and birds chow down on a sumac in our back yard.

Still a little too cold for me to be sitting outside--I'm such a princess! The music is still keeping me motivated.

Hi Shelley Ann and PB! Glad you enjoying the tunes. PB it sounds like you're having a more idyllic afternoon than Shelley Ann. Yes, Mais Um Discos is such a cool record label.

PeterB
Yeah, Real Rio is downloading as we type. ;^) Will dig into the label some more too. New to me. Oh-oh! Some of them squirrels are starting to look a tad frisky! ;^)

S.A.M. : Sundays between 1 and 3 is no time for chores! Procrastinate. Tax season is sooooo next month.

Manmohan Panesar (host)
Especially when you have some funky steel pan fusiony music to listen to. PB, that's Sundays between 1 and 4 (FOUR) , not 3. C'mon brother. Mais cuts through the cheese and presents edgy Brazilian music. Everything they put out is gold.

OK. Give me a 'D' on my time-math skills. CKCU, 25/8, is the proper time to listen to great radio, and procrastinate.

Hi PeterB, Oh I wish I wish! No rest for the wicked! That was a nice little mini-vacation heard on last week's T.I.E. (John McLaughlin--Remembering Shakti). Lovely! BTW, I didn't know that world music had that effect on squirrels--who knew?
