10 Fantastic World Music Stations on Pandora

Last year, as part of our homeschool "world trip", my kids and I delved into music from around the globe. We discovered that, in addition to the great Putumayo world music CD's, there are actually many fantastic world music stations on Pandora internet radio. To be sure, there were some world music stations we did not enjoy (ugh, Japanese pop music drove me nuts!), but there were also many world music stations which have become a regular part of our musical experience at home. With our Blu-Ray player, we are able to listen to Pandora radio very conveniently in the main living space in our house.

Our 10 Favorite World Music Stations on Pandora

Punjabi Hits Radio - Upbeat music from India

La Camisa Negra Radio - Latin American pop music
