Happy New Year 2010! from a Global Perspective
On this first day of 2010, I would like to extend my best and most heartfelt wishes to our great planet and all of us, its global citizens, for a miraculously spectacular new year! May we all enjoy a year teeming with joy, peace, and total well-being, from within us, between us, and all around us.
I realize that my passion for world music has led me to a deeper appreciation of the global environment as a whole, and for that I am truly grateful. As I continue to enjoy listening, I continue to discover the unique, interesting and valuable contribution that each and every individual culture makes to our quality of life on this earth.
Here are a few video tributes to our beautiful planet, all the wonderfully diverse cultures who inhabit it, and the dedicated world musicians out there who so aesthetically spread their messages of global awareness and appreciation to the rest of us. We must always remember to take utmost care of our earth- and each other!!!
