'Dig Dig'

Bob Brozman travels the world's small islands, studying the languages, customs and music of the people. He's learned to love the rhythms of island cultures where, he says, people are more concerned with "life, love, food, nature and music" than with economic or military strength. His latest CD is a collaboration with Rene Lacaille of La Reunion Island, a one-time French colony east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. John Ydstie talks with Brozman about his work and about the island that inspired Dig Dig. (12:30) The CD is Dig Dig, by Rene Lacaille and Bob Brozman. It's on the Riverboat Records label and World Music Network. See www.bobbrozman.com.
