Spin The Globe’s motto is Live Locally, Groove Globally, and it’s taken seriously! Hear upbeat music from the world over on this spirited celebration of musical culture in traditional and hybrid forms.
I’m especially fond of music that’s been through the blender–on “blend,” not on “puree”–such as the Turkish funk of Brooklyn Funk Essentials or the funky Nubian wedding music of Ali Hassan Kuban. I also bring you interviews and live in-studio performances. We've hung with Jewish ethnomusicologist Yale Strom, the all-woman Tuvan throat-singing group Tyva Kyzy, accordian-playing Khmer Rouge survivor Daran Kravanh, African jazz great Hugh Masekela, and many others, including Vagabond Opera, Red Baraat, Nordic Fiddlers Bloc, Habib Koite, Vusi Mahlasela, Obo Addy, Lagbaja, Angelique Kidjo, Jim Malcolm, Rachid Taha, David Krakower, Bob Brozman, Chiwoniso, ... seriously, we've done a lot since going on the air in 1998. Join the fun.
