I've moved!

It might have taken a little longer than I intended, but I finally have the new and improved Nomad's Playlist up and running.

Nomad's Playlist can now be found at www.nomadsplaylist.com

I will be posting from the new site from now on, so I do hope you'll make the move with me.

Thanks and see you over there!

The winds of change

Just a quick post to let you know I've got lots of great changes coming up for NP.

I'm currently putting together some exciting stuff behind the scenes, and might even be changing blog hosts, so please stay posted! 

But to keep you occupied while I get some of these changes going, here's an audio slideshow I've recently put together for a course. I'm thinking about enhancing it with some audio story telling over the top, but I'd love to know what you think. Enjoy!

I'm back! ...well almost

Yoohoo! Remember me? The person who used to post regularly about world music?

Well, I'm finally back...sort of.

Staying true to my habit of telling people stories they really don't care about, I'll tell you why I disappeared. I had been hoping to connect the blog to my course Introduction to World Music, sharing videos/audio related to weekly topics in the course. But the course didn't run and I kind of gave up to focus on the blog that I get paid to write (Songlines in case you haven't checked that one out yet).

However, here I am again, mainly to encourage anyone even remotely interested to head on over to the Mary Ward Centre website and sign up for the next term of my Introduction to World Music course. It starts in April and is going to be great fun! (Please email me if you'd like any more information about the course)

In the meantime, I will try my best to post regularly with some good music and who knows, maybe some actual writing.

And so I leave you with this, my current favourite video (apologies for the explicit language, but it's a good track):
