Top Gifts for World Music Fans - Sat, 12/22/2012
Looking for that perfect gift for the World Music lover? Look no further, since here is a good start to get you started. And, if you purchase a CD or book through this list, WCVE will get a small monetary donation. Some of these are new, and some of choices are not-so-new. But, it's all OK, because giving the gift of music is always a winner. Also, some of these are compilations--which are great, becuase you get more bang for your buck, while others are by stand-alone artists that are just too good to pass up.
