What's Coming Up?
Plan ahead

The week of August 7th
The 243rd edition of RootsWorld Radio will begin with our selection for Music of the Month for August, raw new Ethiopian music from the house ensemble of the Fendika Azmari Bet in Addis Ababa. We'll head south to Namibia, and then pass through Greece (via India), Syria, Norway and finally England. Artists on the show include Fendika, Martha Mavrodi, Elemotho, Syrian refugee children in Lebanon, Mansour Sayter, Ljom and Teyr.

The week of July 24th
A summer rerun: on the 185th edition of RootsWorld Radio, we'll be listening to a small sampling of a 2012 concert by British-born Palestinian singer and band leader Reem Kelani. We'll also hear new music from the 20th anniversary recordings by one of the best of the Balkan brass bands, Fanfare Ciocarlia. From Jacmel, Haiti we'll hear Lakou Mizik and from the US Virgin Islands, Stanly and the Ten Sleepless Knights. Finland's Värttinä performs a traditional song in their inimitable style. Other artists on the program will include Titi Robin & Mehdi Nassouli (France/Morocco), Michel Benita (Algeria via Paris), Norwegian duo Erik Rydall Olav Mjelva, Tord Gustavsen (Norway) and Canadians Gregory Hoskins & Gary Craig.
