Episode 38: Sisters

<< Tropicology

There is a special theme for today’s show; one of those themes that crosses across all regions served by Tropicology; you can expect to hear music from Africa, Brazil, and Latin America mixed together on today’s show. I’m also mixing old and new today, with a wide range in styles. In fact there is just one qualifier for a song to join today’s set list: the lead vocalist must be female. All female vocals on this episode of Tropicology. I will admit that I was inspired to do this set a couple weeks ago on International Women’s Day… but it was too late to coordinate this year. I’ll try to start making this theme an annual event to sync up with future Women’s Day celebrations.
