The Island Uigher Welcome Song!

Posted at 10:40 AM on June 16, 2009 by Jeff Horwich

I've been thinking a lot about these Uighur "non-enemy-combatants" from Guantanamo who have been accepted by two tropical islands, Bermuda and Palau.

Hence our latest "news-tune." (With apologies for my attempt to craft some kind of mystery "Bermuda-Palau" accent...) And yes, those are real steel drums...

Here's a download link for the MP3. And I hope to have a video put together of this tune in the next few days.

Of course, it's just one tiny part of our next podcast episode :-)
