2009 in review so far

Amaranth "music fan"
The list author says: "2009 has been a mixed year for music. World music has been recognized at the Academy Awards. Putumayo has released another Asian compilation (FINALLY!!!) Playing for Change is a surprising success. It's the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. At the same time, there have been the tragic deaths of Michael Jackson and Les Paul."
