Fantastic New Releases Hot off the Press

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. This afternoon expect to hear from many great new releases and some older ones as well. Stay tuned to loads of music from the Middle East and South Asia as well as visits to Europe, Latin America and Africa. Keep it locked here at CKCU, the Mighty 93.1 FM.
We start with a new release featuring improvisational music featuring saxophone and electronica. The result is a somewhat psychedelic nebula of sound with some worldly and otherwordly flavours.

Lovely start to the program Manmohan. Looking forward to "hanging out" while listening in. Literally! It's a perfect day for putting laundry on the line to dry, as I am about to do... ;^)
