Less Pleading, More Music

Thanks to all who donated during the 2011 CKCU Funding Drive. Here at This Island Earth, we are committed to bringing you the best in World Music over the coming months. Highlights: To begin the show, we will hear from Fatoumata Diawara's full-length debut, mixing the Wassalou traditions of Southern Mali with other Earthling influences. In the last hour we will sample the delightful results of Kiran Ahluwalia's recent collaboration with Tinariwen.

Kiran Ahluwalia's latest includes a number of tracks recorded in Paris with This Island Earth Favourites, Tinariwen. Enjoy!

"The needing of collaboration comes because we ourselves are collaborations of culture. [...] We’re not pure. I collaborate in the kitchen: I make Japanese soy bean curry, Indian style. I think in English, or in Hindi-or French. Our lives are collaboration, because we don’t belong to one culture.’’

Great show Alnoor. Loved the "Gigi" segment. Yes I hope to "soar" on my own in the future! Kiran Ahluwalia is hypnotic and good! Looking forward to Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
