Summertime…and the dubbing is easy… Tonight we celebrated 12 years inna Echo Chamber.

Topping this off we featured a segment of Dub Rogue’s Dub Mash radio program (from Oi FM in Finland).
Today we began with reflective music by the Gbaya Pygmies of Central Africa (Ocora), this was followed by Swedish fiddle music (Shanchie), and Hungarian group Makam (Fono), then Iraqi oud music by Rahim Alhaj (Smithsonian), music from Crete by Psarantonis (World Network), Iranian music from Mamak Khadem, Touareg music from Algeria by Imaran (al sur), the Irish fiddle music from friend, James Kelly (Faetain), and music from France by Dominique Cravie and les Primitifs du Futur (Universal), instrumental music from Hungary (Hungaroton), songs and Drums from Nubia (Institu du Monde Arabe).
In the second hour we began with Rahhal, a group of gypsies of the Nile (Arc), and then music from the Hungarian Hurdy Gurdy Ensemble.
