Not quite a complete trip around the world, this episode delivers sounds from far away and close to home. Take a step outside your musical comfort zone to experience a range of tones, textures, melodies and rhythms. These are some personal favorites, friends and new finds that I think should hear. Definitely one to listen to from start to finish, as it takes quite a few twists and turns.
