Boy, do I love the new Brazilian Street Party compilation! World Music Network has put together a marvelously energetic collection for this release -- and for a little longer you can catch a track from it at this earlier post.
Just confirmed an interview with Palestinian singer Reem Kelani for this Friday's Spin The Globe, so I'm off to do a little more research on her. Listen in, if you can. And watch this space in the next few days for a massive spring-cleaning post.
