Now, with hardly time to catch my breath, I'm eagerly anticipating the Olympia appearance by Nawal. Originally from the Indian Ocean islands of Comoros off the coast of Africa, Nawal blends the music from her roots and her travels. It's a mix that's as hard to describe as the musics of Madagascar; there's just something about those African islands that produces beautiful, unique blends of musical influences. Hear it for yourself at Traditions Fair Trade Cafe in Olympia at 8pm Monday October. 24.
