The Importance of Place

For as long as humans have been around, we've had strong ties to our land. And we've been writing music about it, too. Today's show features an hour of Spanish music, followed by an hour of performances from Atlanta, Georgia. They're two very different worlds, with unique and exciting musical landscapes.
