Any chance Kiran Ahluwalia's new one, "Aam Zameen: Common Ground" made yer list? Have not managed to pick it up yet, but everything I've heard has been really gorgeous. And, CanCon! ;^)

Good call. I just picked up the disc last month--the tracks she does with Tinarawen are particularly strong. I have it programmed for the last hour.

Cool! Tinarawen, indeed. Nothing says "world" like a canuck Ghazal singer mashing it up w. Mali funk...

Thnx, nice pick. Will get my &*#@ together for co-host thing eventually. Long story ... Peter
