Music from around the world...

...including Devon, of course. This is what we usually play -  though admittedly there are certain countries that we have yet to feature. It's true that we don't play a great deal of Asian music - just because we don't have that much in our collections. So, it was good that both of us this week remedied this a bit by featuring Japanese and Chinese music. We'll do our best to widen our sphere of music even more. Promise!
