December 31: Odun-de (Nigerian for Happy New Year)

Listen to or download, "Odun-de (Nigerian for Happy New Year)"

A world music foray to ease us into 2008. Babatunde Olatunje starts off with a chant to the thunder gods ("Shango") to Afghanistan, Israel Palestine, Egypt, Cuba does the classics, South Africa, then back to U.S. for women's blues. Finally, back to Nigeria for Odun-de (Nigerian for Happy New Year).
