Stranger Things

There have been some strange things in the world of World Music. Sure, some happen to think that World Music involves the spiritual, ethereal sounds of wind chimes, chants and handclaps led by people wearing burlap sacks or something of the sort.

In a word: Zilch.

And, for those who may be looking for hidden clues in this blog, no, my wife and I are not “expecting.”
