Today’s program includes music that ranges from Morocco to Pakistan, ancient to modern, spare rhythms to ornate vocalization. The mix tends heaviest to Persian and to traditional music, but pop musicians will make occasional appearances, as well as Israeli, Egyptian, and Turkish musicians. The program also includes musicians who are not from the Middle East but whose music is inspired by the traditions of the region.

From the Library is produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now in-world at http://music.radioriel.org, or click one of the buttons below. Today’s program is presented by Otenth Paderborn.
