A huge Thank You for all the shout-outs and plugs!

Sent out into the world by eminent journalists to Grammy-Award winning musicians, I’ve gotten some great shout-outs this week on Twitter, Facebook, and various Blogs (in languages as varied as French and Japanese)!

I’ve tried to re-tweet/ share/ like all the ones that I could find, but if I missed yours, please do tell me.

Here are links to some of the blog posts (since they have a longer web half-life):

As part of Timbuktu’s weeklong Mawlid festivities, celebrants press their heads against the outer wall of the great mosque Djingarey-Ber and pray for their hopes in the coming year.  Mawlid -- a festival celebrating the birth of the Prophet – is a holiday characteristically associated with Sufi-influenced Islamic culture. (MARCH 30, 2007)
