The week of February 27th, 2017
The 228th edition of RootsWorld Radio starts with some artists that explore The Treasure of Language; in this case, lesser know tongues of Europe and the Atlantic. Languages all have their own unique rhythms and meter that are reflected in both the poetry and in the music itself. These artists offer us a glimpse into their very local worlds, singing (and, in effect, playing) in Faroese, Karelian and Älvdalska. The artists for these pieces are Kata (Faroe Islands), Lekkujad (Finland/Karelia) and Lena Willemark (Älvdalans, Sweden). Other artists on the show include Derroll Adams (US), Okra Playground (Finland), Nisia (Italy/Belgium) and Olu Dara (US).
Aurelio's Darandi is RootsWorld's Music of the Month selection for March. Find out more!
