This Island Earth
Sunday April 15th, 2018 with Manmohan Panesar
Tribute to the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, plus my 50th Birthday indulgences with some old faves and a smattering of outstanding new releases.

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 ckcufm.com from anywhere around the world. This afternoon we begin with a hommage to the incredible life of the late anti-Apartheid activist and revolutionary, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who passed away on April 2. Thousands gathered at her funeral yesterday (April 14) in South Africa to celebrate her life and to send her off (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-43767488). Yesterday also marked another occasion, albeit of lesser significance - that would be my 50th birthday. The old man here will also feature some indulgences by playing a number of fave tracks from over the years as well as some new gems that have been recently released. Expect to hear some music from Haiti, South Africa, Mali, Senegal, Cyprus, Pakistan, Lebanon, Niger, Algeria, Brazil, as well as some fusiony pieces which defy geographical origin. Enjoy and please do drop me a line.

Zork (deffinitely not PeterB)
Just tuned in, back from outside errands, here on planet Zargon 4. Is the weather as nasty in Ottawa as here? Regardless, the tunage is warming us up from that nasty freezing methane crystals outside.

My gf and I are both Earthlings and you are making us feel better about our decision to stay in this afternoon. The music is great, thank you ~

Hi Zork who is most certainly not PB. I've never been to Zargon 4 but Zargon 3 is pretty darn cool to visit. Wherever you are I'm glad you are able to access us live. Keep listening! Bad weather everywhere - we're doomed.

Hi gatineau_joe! Super good that we are able to provide a soundtrack for your chill out Sunday. Stay tuned for more goodies coming up. Thanks for your kind words!

This is great! My track listing isn't updating, though. Do you post track lists at some point? You're right, that Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan song was great

Wait, was that the qawwali & temple of doom track?

3:12 PM, April 15th, 2018
Manmohan Panesar (host)
Yes, the only Qawwali track I have played today is the Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali & Temple of Doom one. AA mix of qawwali and electronica.

Manmohan Panesar (host)
gatineau_joe, is your playlist updating now? I am adding tracks one at a time as I play each one.

Hello Manmohan, Just tuned in myself. So glad we have shows like T.I.E. with music to keep our spirits up on a rather yucky Sunday afternoon. I'll catch up with what I've missed On Demand

I will definitely want to hear the homage paid to Winnie Mandela. I knew that you had celebrated a birthday but I did not know it was a milestone! A time to look back on all you have achieved, and to look ahead to you have yet to do and all that is to come. Happy Birthday!!!!!! Age, SCHMAGE!!!!

3:31 PM, April 15th, 2018
Manmohan Panesar (host)
Thanks S.A.M. Always a pleasure to hear from you! You're absolutely correct about aging. Are you cleaning your house again?

What?! Really?! NOBODY ELSE KNOWS THIS SONG BUT ME!

3:46 PM, April 15th, 2018
Manmohan Panesar (host)
Which song?

3:47 PM, April 15th, 2018
S.A.M.
Not today--I was out celebrating with family - I'm six years ahead of you in age--tomorrow! Time Flies!

The salsa song you just played. It just finished! I have it from a salsa mixtape somebody made for me fifteen years ago or so. Is it from the Fania label? I don't remember the guy's name offhand.
