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 Tribute to Leonard Cohen

It is a challenge to pay homage to a great poet like Leonard Cohen, in a 52 minutes radio program.  Perhaps some may be  disappointed for not having included  a favorite.  More so because so many artists have used his material, and many of his songs.   After some consideration the decision was made to just focus on Leonard Cohen as a performer as well as writer and composers, and not the interpretations  of his music by others. With one exception, the inclusion of “Blue Alert”  a song composed by Leonard but interpreted by Ajani Thomas, when you listen to it you will understand and  forgive me.
