This Island Earth
Sunday February 17th, 2019 with PeterB
Mostly music from all over the pan-African-based soundscape. Ample new stuff. A full play from Maurice Louca's STUNNING new release too.

Given it is officially 'Black History Month', there will be ample diaspora-surfing today. And LOADS of new stuff too. Plus a full play of Maurice Louca's KILLER new recording. But, OK, let's just say it out loud ... 'Black History Month' is EVERY month. As is 'Aboriginal History Month', 'Earth Day', and sooo many more. Sayin' ... PLEASE DO hit us up on the Interactive Thingy (it is over there ==>). We'd sure love to hear from you!!

Starting off with a breif ear-freshener. A taste of a new and very beautiful collaboration from Foday Musa Suso and Philip Glass. Much more of this one to come in future, for sure!

Featuring a new release from Mauice Louca, out of Cairo, Egypt. A very diverse sounding knockout! We will play it in full today. And no doubt revisit in future. Sit back and enjoy…

Trying to escape the gravitational pull of the Africa just for now. And yet somehow not really going that far out of orbit either... Including yet another expansive piece from the JUST STUNNING 'My East Is Your West'.
