Hosted by Dennis Darrah.

Music from around the world is featured. Bringing the audience into the realm of other cultures through music, hopefully expanding empathy for the “other,” and recognizing that “other” in ourselves. Today: We feature the music of Touareg women today mostly sampling the music of Les Filles de Illighadad (the daughters of Illighadad) from Niger. But interspersed between their two albums we hear some traditional female Touareg music recorded in the field in Algeria back in the early 1990's.
