Thank you + Music to Mark the International Day to End Violence Against Women + Some Outstanding New Releases

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. Yesterday was the International Day to End Violence Against Women. To support that day we will feature a number of recordings performed by women, either that directly address the issue or that support more generally women's rights. We also feature a number of outstanding new releases that caught my ear, and then we may have time for a few other odds and ends. Enjoy and please drop a line. Thanks to everyone who DIALED and DONATED or PLEDGED ON-LINE during this year's FUNDING DRIVE. We reached our goal of raising $135 000 thanks to you. Now for another year of great programming at CKCU.

Hi Manmohan, Thank you sooooo much!!! I've just turned this up really loud and enjoying Zero 7. Never get tired of this song--puts a big smile on my face!!!!

Hah! You requested it and there it is! Glad you were listening in at the right time.

That's really interesting--I heard Likufanele from Zero 7"s Simple Things CD--one of my "Desert Island" CDs--I guess that IS a big, celebratory African choir--which is what the song always sounded like to me.

Wicked Afrobeats! ... The perfect antidote for shmarmy Christmas time crapola we are now getting subjected to in big-box grocery stores and the like (from which I just escaped).

Thankfully you escaped, PB! And just in time for something uplifting.
