25 Best Global / World Music CDs of 2012 - 14 December 2012

25 Best Global / World Music CDs of 2012 - 14 December 2012

Playing tracks by

Lokkhi Terra, Värttinä, Samuel Yirga, Ballake Sissoko , Attwenger and more.

How does one compare great Solomon Islands pan pipe music with groundbreaking Alptronica? How does one rank Balkan brass against kora jazz? One can't, really. So instead of an arbitrary ranking in the form of a Top Something list, Spin The Globe gathered the best music received in 2012 (a few officially released earlier...), and slowly removed albums from the pile until only 25 remained. This show features songs from those 25 albums, plus one gripping single. Print out the list and put numbers in front of each listing if you like, or just listen and enjoy. And remember that global music makes a great gift for, well, pretty much anyone. Happy holidays, and thanks for your part in making 2012 a memorable year.
