Something to chew on over Christmas

There is some nice chewy music on Future Radio over Christmas. That is me above putting together My World of Music, a two hour special of music from different cultures and traditions around the world which is being broadcast by Future Radio at 4.00pm UK time on December 26th on a local FM frequency and over the internet.

Before the Christmas police start complaining the music isn't very seasonal I would point out that the title of the last track, which comes from Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar's 1990 album, means Peacefulness in English. More on that album here.
