In the Tribe: This set was mixed in Brooklyn on Election Day 2010. It is dedicated to every American who feels this nation has a ‘Muslim’ problem. Watching the blue fringes and red center of this nation is depressing for a number of reasons, but most prominently when any of the 70% of Americans who do not own a passport feel capable of discussing global issues. While it is dedicated to that segment, it is for everybody to enjoy, as music is one of the quickest entry points to learning about other cultures. Featuring songs by Bahramji & Maneesh de Moor, Nagore Sessions, Nass Marrakech, Natacha Atlas, Drumspyder, Kartick & Gotam, Beats Antique, Mercan Dede, Dubsahara, Susheela Raman, and Ravi Shankar & George Harrison, the illuminating commentary interspersed throughout is presented by Joseph Campbell. Enjoy.
