Happy Winter Solstice and New Moon

Good Morning and Welcome to InterTribal

The winter solstice is tomorrow and so is the new moon. What a powerful time for us. We dance to celebrate the return of the sun and we dance for healing.

Thank you for joining our community fire as we celebrate.

Global A Go-Go: Friday December 19, 5-7 PM

This week on Global A Go-Go, I'll run through my favorite compilations and reissues of 2014.  For ten years, this category has been a consistent source of great material for my radio program, and it remains the fastest and cheapest way to build a great music collection.

The boom in global cratedigging has led to a plethora of excellent compilations and reissues, and 2014 continued this trend.  Classic recordings from Turkey, southeast Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Brazil, and all parts of Africa: all these and more are represented on my list, and on this week's show.  Tune in and find some new old music to love.
