What's Coming Up?
Plan ahead

Coming up this week:
RootsWorld Radio #167 will start off with some rhythmic beatings from Bahia Black, and then spend some time listening to the piano in different settings, from the music of South Africa, to a trio of musicians from Gambia and Sweden bringing together piano, kora and saxophone. We'll finish off the program with Youssou N'Dour et le Super Etoile de Dakar, recorded live in Athens in 1987. The recording is from from next month's "Music of the Month" recording. Other artists will include Catina DeLuna & Lado B; Alagi M'Bye, Arne Forsén and Jonas Knutsson; Hank Jones and Cheick-Tidiane Seck, Abdullah Ibrahim, Aranis, and Uxia.

RootsWorld Radio #166: Our featured recordings come from the last album made by Burkina Faso’s legendary Amadou Balaké. We’ll also hear a few songs from the Finnish duo of Jutta Rahmel & Maija Pokela; they call themselves Unaja. Other artists on the show include Matthias Loibner, Catina DeLuna & Lado B, Gaiteiros de Lisboa, Terakaft; Berger, Knutsson, Spering & Schultz; and Bellowhead.
