Sacred World Music: Spin The Globe playlist 23 NOV 2007

The Evergreen campus was silent the morning of Black Friday -- not a soul in sight amid the frost-encrusted lawns and trees clinging to their last few leaves. But the chimerical allure of consumerist nirvana doesn't stop the radio. Indeed, I'd much rather be broadcasting good music than fighting crowds at the mall.
So the show went on with a mix of sacred world music in the first hour and wider variety in the second hour. I've raved before about the Kobo Town CD Independence; again on this day their lyrics ring true but sometimes forgotten facts about each of us:

Urban Autumn - photo (c) 2007 Scott Allan Stevens, earball visionsthey whisper in your ears, play your fears,
summon smiles, conjure tears,
but you're still the image of the Most High
no matter how you look in their eyes
so don't let them seduce you
don't let them reduce you
don't let them define you
never let them refine you
you are more than you consume
much more than you presume
more than others might assume
beautiful soul
--Kobo Town, "Beautiful Soul"
