Wanderlust (Slower)

For the end of 2006 I made a two disc compilation of (mostly) international music from all over the world. I think compared to most commercial compilations of international music, the songs on this compilation are, on the whole, less slick and highly produced. This, the second disc, is overall slower than the first, and perhaps more similar in mood to my more recent compilation Voices of Longing. Otherwise, I think the wildly diverse music speaks for itself.
