Saturday at WOMAD 2012 and the Radio 3 stage has been alive with music to get world music lovers in the festival mood. An energentic Chrissy Cowley gave both festival goers and those listening at home a Celtic treat on the fiddle to start us off for the day. Later this afternoon She'Koyokh got the crowd dancing (including those of us backstage) with their combination of klezma and Balkan music. We are now enjoying the fantastic Breabach as the evening sets in.

On the rest of the site the Radio 3 team have been talking to the cream of the world music scene including Femi Kuti. Tune in from 10.30pm tonight to hear highlights of these interviews, excerpts from some of the performances and to catch Abdallah Oumbadougou with his fantastic Saharan blues.
