What's Coming Up?
Plan ahead

The week of July 26th
On the 113th edition of RootsWorld, we'll start with some brass, reeds and strings from Denmark, and flutes from France and Sweden. We'll explore some jazz roots from France and Canada via Venezuela. The program will also feature some new electro- acoustic music from Italy that explores the march of Hannibal. Artists include Habadekuk, Trolska Polska, Nos Honks, Karine Polwart, Compagnie Chez Bousca, Eliana Cuevas, Clotilde Rullaud, and The Esperti Project.

The week of July 19th
On the 112th edition of RootsWorld Radio, join Cliff Furnald for a musical trip around the planet. We'll start with some 70s roots-pop music from Algeria, hear some brand new jazz from Morocco, some Nordic roots, a bit of American-African fusion and a NYC klezmer experiment, a return visit to a Persian artist and a new recording by a father and son kora duet. Artists will include Bellamou & Benfissa, Zebrina, Les Abranis, Oum, NID, Imaginary Homeland, Habbadam, Marjan Vahdat, and Toumani & Sidiki Diabate.
