2010 favorites

2010 was a great year for world music, and we'll take a tour through a few of my favorites. Most of 'em are from Africa, but we'll make stops in Thailand, Cuba and Persia, and hear some American and British 60s rock influence in Nigeria and a strong Latin American sound in the music of Angola. Hot stuff for a Happy New Year!
