Lipmo’s Best of Year 2011

For the last 12 years, I have been bringing out my favorite World Music tracks of the year and making cd’s to give as gifts. As a World Music fan, I wanted to turn people onto amazing artists they probably have never heard of. This year is the first year I am putting them out digitally as a blog as well as on cd. Hope you enjoy this beautiful music as much as I have all year and get turned onto new artists. To Happy Listening!!
