SoundRoots Is On Sabbatical

Dear friends, fans, lovers of global music:

As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting frequently in recent months. Other elements of life -- most of them good -- seem to have taken precedence over music blogging. Music is still a huge part of my daily life, but it's pulling me in different directions. This, along with some upcoming travel, is enough that I think it's time to declare an official sabbatical. I hope this will help me to think of SoundRoots not as a burden demanding my attention, but as an old friendship that I'm leaving for a while, but that will be warmly awaiting my return.

So I'm going to formally take 2-3 months off, and will report back to you after that. In the meantime, feel free to keep up with my musical discoveries through my weekly radio show and its Facebook page, on which I post short Daily Spins several times each week. I'm also a panelist with the Transglobal World Music Chart -- another great resource for discovering new global sounds.

This isn't the end of SoundRoots, just a needed break. If you'd like me to return sooner than later, I'd welcome your encouragement in the comments. If you think SoundRoots has run its course, or need to shift to some other platform, I'm all ears. You can rest assured that in some form, I'll keep sharing my new musical obsessions with you. I'll be back with an update on just what form that may take in a little while.

Thanks for reading, listening, and being open-minded and global-leaning!
