What's Coming Up?
Plan ahead

Floating Sofa Quartet
On RootsWorld Radio #252, the week of December 4th, we will be listening to a live set by the Nordic ensemble, Floating Sofa Quartet, recorded in Denmark at the Tønder Festival in August as part of the FolkSpot 2017 concert series. The second half of the show will include new music from, Kyab-Yul-Sa (France/Tibet), Habadekuk (Denmark), Boubacar Traoré and Quartet Soolmaan (Belgium).

We'll start off the 251st edition of RootsWorld Radio with music from Malian guitarist Boubacar Traoré. We'll also hear from the Polish trio WoWaKin, Jono Heyes & 9 Pilgrims, music from Belgium by Tunisian singer Ghalia Benali with the Brass ensemble Maak, as well as two tracks from Belgian art ensemble Zefiro Torna, who Benali also sings with. We'll hear some raw Croat music by Kries and works by the duo of saxophonist Jean-Marc Padovani and Spanish vocalist Paloma Pradal.

The 250th edition of RootsWorld Radio will start and end with two very different artists from the American south. To get from there to there, we'll also hear some forbidden music from Italy, an old American song from a Nashville superstar, a hybrid of Scots and Austrian music, a Norwegian view of Ireland, edgy contemporary music from Lebanon, and a Balkan-Italian duo. Artists will include Ranky Tanky, Lee Ann Womack, Black Market Tune, Acquaragia Drom with Erasmo Treglia, Tania Saleh, Maria Mazzotta & Redi Hasa, KV Express and Mosquito Cabaret.
