This week we'll look at women and men and the equally compelling perspectives they bring to music. We have come a long way from days when gender roles were specific and restricting. Now we find even in parts of the world where traditional divisions between men and women remain, within the arts those walls are collapsing. Helping illustrated that on this episode of Idyllic Music are Endless Blue, Boleros En Femeni, Fuji Kureta, Babbaracos, The Crisis Project and Sarah Fimm. I'm Jim Nye
