New NPR CD Compilation Features a Variety of World Music Artists
Published September 19, 2005

WASHINGTON–NPR (National Public Radio) is launching the sixth volume of the popular collection I Heard It On NPR on September 27, titled One World Many Voices.

Previous I heard It On NPR CDs have creatively covered the breadth of popular music: the debut release featured jazz legends and newcomers, and subsequent editions explored unique American music genres, world music, blues and singer/songwriters performing in NPR’s Studio 4A.  “This sixth CD returns to the global music theme but this time, also takes listeners on a journey through the local history and events that influenced the artists we’re showcasing,” said Barbara Sopato, E-Commerce Manager, NPR.

One World Many Voices” includes 13 songs from such globally-diverse artists as Emeline Michel, GreenJolly, Miriam Makeba and Patti Smith. The CD series is produced in partnership with Daedalus Books and Music and Boss Sounds. 

Links to NPR’s on-air coverage of each musician featured on the new CD as well as translations of the lyrics for each song can be found at www.npr.org/ihearditonnpr starting September 27.
