    Wow, this is weird. I was just about to do a post on having a theme song. Good choice.

    Most of these artists you have named here are some of my favorite Music Artists. I hosted a global music program for about 4 years. One in college and one for Public Broadcasting. (found your site by way of Nikkita the Traveller) Yes, I LOVE Six Degrees and everything they do. My favorite band is and always will be ZUCO 103 (Six Degrees/Ziriguiboom. Check them out. Lilian Veira is the front woman and Stefan and Stefan handle the instrumentals. Lily is from Brazil and the Stef’s are from Europe. Zuco is based in Netherlands ( I really want to be there NOW). I could go on and on. I am also working on a global music network.

    I would like to interview you for my lifestyle and travel podcast. The website is not completely live yet, while I am collecting content. WLT encourages listeners to EXPLORE and EXPERIENCE.

    Oh cool! We love a lot of the same music! Love Orishas – saw a guy from Orishas play in another band when we were in New York recently at the Latin Alternative Music Conference showcase. Dig Bebel Gilberto. And Cesaria Evora makes me cry. In a good way.
