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.
