A North African Odyssey

Click to enlarge

Every week on Sound Travels we head into a theme(s) of some sort. This week, I thought that we might explore some of the music of the middle-east and today in particular, we started it out with some great names from North Africa. From Sudan to Morocco, I played some very interesting pop music from an area of the world that finds few footings in American radio. It's ok if you missed the set, because I have all of the songs right here.
