Spin the Globe

Added 12/09/2009
This site has an impressive collection of world music categorized by genre as well as region and country. It has a large number of free downloads as well as featured weekly free downloads. The African music may be helpful in French language classrooms as the combination of Western and African sounds may be more appealing to high school students than the traditional music. This site would provide an excellent resource for a webquest. The freedownloads are also useful in creating training materials for foreign language teachers.
