What's Coming Up?
Plan ahead

The week of October 25th
On the 124th edition of RootsWorld Radio, we'll listen to brand new music from Coco Mbassi (Cameroon), Djessou Mory Kanté (Guinea), Spiro (UK), Trio Mio (Sweden/Denmark) and Cascada de Flores (US), as well as dig into the archives for Jarmo Rompannen (Finland), Patrick Vaillant (France), Mercedes Peón (Spain) and Banda Osiris (Italy).

The week of October 18th, 2014
On the 123rd edition of RootsWorld Radio, we'll feature two recordings that could easily make my personal Top 10 list for 2014. Guinean guitarist Djessou Mory Kanté's River Strings: Maninka Guitar is a solid collection of instrumentals, some traditional, most written by Kanté himself. It's beautifully recorded with a no nonsense approach to arrangements and instrumentation, and offers the listener a guitar sound that abounds in elegant complexity and deep traditional rhythms. Across the Atlantic, we'll hear 2 tracks from Garifuna singer and band leader Aurelio. Michael Stone says in his recent RW review of Lándini that the recording is "Aurelio's strongest outing yet." I agree.
We'll also visit Mali, Italy, Bulgaria, Trinidad, Finland and Spain and hear from artists including Bulgara, Hiite, Amadou & Mariam, Lord Kitchener, Luisa Cottifogli, Re Niliu, Piia Kleemola, and Lidia Pujol, Psàlite & Miguel Gil.

RootsWorld Radio is available via PRX Public Radio Exchange via WAMU in Washington, DC, our host station.
