Artists will include Trio Tekke with Dave deRose, Basco, Ti Jaz, Kazut de Tyr, Carmen Paris & Nabyla Maan, Fendika, Kukaya and The Tonga Boys.

On the 240th edition of RootsWorld Radio, we'll hear voices and instruments from the Arctic north of Finland, some Brazilian rock, music for cranes and flutes from Sweden, some very rootsy 'rap' from Ghana, middle eastern adventures from Belgium and Brittany, and further adventures in Italy, Sweden and Portugal. And we'll finish off with a visit to a most interesting barber shop. Artists this week include Tapani Rinne & Wimme Sari, Jonas Simonsson, King Ayisoba, Hedningarna, The Osama Abdulrasol Quintet, Kazut De Tyr, Mimmo Epifani, Lena Willemark, Carmen Souza & Theo Pascal, and Cory Seznec.
