Journey with us from China, across the steppes of Central Asia, through Persia and the Fertile Crescent, to the Mediterranean. For millennia, this ancient trade route has carried not only silk and spices but culture and language. Today’s program samples music from across 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.
