The Legacy Music Hour: World Music

Brent and Rob travel the globe, discovering world music tracks from 8-bit and 16-bit era video games.  The music heard on Episode 96 resembles the kind of music one might hear on a world music radio program, that is, traditional ethnic music, world-fusion, and even New Age.  The boys also share stories of traveling to foreign lands such as Minneapolis.  Full track listing below.
