What's Coming Up?
Plan ahead

For the week of December 5th, 2016
On the 219th edition of RootsWorld, we'll hear a few fusions with music from Brittany by artists from Czech Republic and Niger. A Malawian musician has built his music around an instrument of his own making. The Hungarian cimbalom meets Argentinean piano and bandoneon. An American string quartet mixes it up with a Native flute player on a ride through Tuva. And we finish up with some archive recordings from the state of Florida. Artists on the show: Gaby Kerdoncuff Trio, Ba.Fnu &Yann Fañch Kemener, Serendou, Gaspar Nali, ETHEL + Robert Mirabal, Jerez Le Cam Quartet, Richard Williams; Deacon Dan Smith, Nick Hallman & Georgia Sea Islands; Albert Buck Thompson, and Ida Goodson

For the week of November 28th, 2016
On the 218th edition of RootsWorld Radio, we'll start a little darker with Leonard Cohen. We'll also feature the triumphant return of English folk legend, Shirley Collins, and hear tracks from the Swedish/Norwegian trio Groupa from their brand new recording, Kind of Folk vol 1, Sweden. And along the way, we'll hear a Poetisk Tale from Solveig Slettenhjell (Norway), the Czech folk trio Ba.Fnu, joined by Breton musician Yann-Fanch Kemener, Kanazoé Orkestra, led by balofonist Seydou Diabaté Kanazoé (France/Burkina Faso), Palestinian oud player and composer Issa Murad and his ensemble Joussour, and some strange Balkan jazz by the trio Bey.Ler.Bey.

Hear some past programs in the archive.
