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):
