Lots of new sounds on this month's chart -- from Chadian singer Mounira Mitchala at #1 to Ethiopia's Krar Collective at #10.

By the way, you can hear selections from all of these albums on last week's episode of Spin The Globe: 

The SoundRoots / Spin the Globe monthly Top 10 is a somewhat subjective ranking of recent “world music” (sometimes including Latin, Native American, & reggae) album releases, based on on-air spins, listener response, and our own eclectic tastes.
