Feminine Fusion

S5-30: Looking West, Part 2

Compass West

“So much of who we are, is where we have been”  —  William Langwiesche

We continue to circle the globe today as we look to the West, to music by women from Europe.  These are relatively new releases, covering a fair range of geography .  Not all of the music is new, but the performances certainly are.  This is music from the women of England, Italy, Germany, and even Latvia and Bulgaria
