egypt and more

Egypt has been top of news with the protests in recent weeks. This week’s World of Music opens with a musical survey of the country, past and contemporary. We’ll hear the rich, historic voice of Oum Kalsoum along with the modern sounds of El Tanbura and Sharkiat.

Later in the show it’s Shasha Marley from Ghana, Compay Quinto from Peru, and Qawwali music from the charismatic voice of Pakistan’s Badar Ali Khan.

World of Music is a virtual Iditarod of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator.  Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
