One of the best podcast quality to number of episodes ratios I've ever encountered.
Unique and excellent
I came to this podcast via the East European Folklife Center listserv. The show is wonderful: a thorough, engrossing look at disparate musical cultures through expert lenses and interesting discussion. I love being able to learn more and listen further based on the extensive notes for each episode on the website. Thank you so much, Hannah, for producing such an excellent, high-caliber show!
Love this show!
This show has already turned me on to so much new music - the industrial episode led me on an unlikely and very interesting journey into Latin freestyle. Keep up the good work!
