GloBeat Spring ’17 Compilation

This episode of GloBeat with title GloBeat ’17 Compilation is in a sense an experiment.  The source for each  selection in this episode comes from CD’s produced by a single label: Putumayo, which focuses on World Music.

Somehow, a good number of the CD’s are compilations of music from some remote islands.  So for the first time I discovered music from Rapa Nui (Easter Island).  Other islands in this GloBreat episode are Sumatra, Cuba, New Zealand,  Sicily, and Cape Verde.

GloBeat Classic Music Deconstructed

In support of the victims of the recent terrorist attack in London  and in memory of the victims  of the terrorist attack in Brussels on Tuesday March 22, 2016, we dedicate this GloBeat episode to them!

The program is an eclectic compilation of  classic music deconstructed and in some cases  rearranged  by artists from different nations and centuries.  We start by listening to “Le Secret”  by the   Belgian composer  Danielle Baas.   The program also includes  selections  from  Mile Davis,  Jane Birkin, Angelique Kidjo and the composer Henry Purcell .
