Playlist: Music of the World with Stephen Kent for January 14, 2010 - 11:00am

This show was prerecorded earlier in the week as I was on the road in New Mexico when it aired working on recording a piece with Grammy Nominee, Rahim Alhaj, for a new Double CD of collaborative recordings featuring Rahim on oud in tandem with a multitude of extraordinary musicians to benefit Doctors Without Borders. Thus, today's Music of the World is not the program that it would have been had it gone out live and in the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake.
As it is I celebrate the life of singer/songwriter Lhasa ( who passed away on New Year's Day and aired more of my choice recordings from the past year.
