Now available for streaming and download - the second edition of the OTHERWORLDLY AND GONE 78rpm podcast, featuring an amazing bevy of lost ethnic music from the 20th century, brought back to life by heroic curators and collectors. A full playlist is below. This one includes selections from brand-new releases on Canary Records and Dust-to-Digital, with an intense focus on Greece in the first half and on Africa in the second, with a little Bulgaria, Mexico, Turkey, Morocco and elsewhere in the mix as well.

It clocks in at eight minutes past an hour, and if you’re like me you’ll find it to be an edifying and intense 68 minutes. Feel free to follow Otherworldly and Gone on Twitter and on Facebook if you enjoy this one; the first edition is available to stream and download right here as well.
