Lucy Duran launches the 2012 World Routes Academy with live performances by oud player Khyam Allami and veena player Hari Sivanesan, as well as the new apprentice and their mentor, who are 19 year old Accordion player José Hernando Noguera and Egidio Cuadrado, who is based in Bogota, and is regarded as the leading Vallenato Accordionist of his generation. This special event was recorded on Friday 27th January in the BBC Radio Theatre in London. Producer James Parkin.

World Routes celebrates the 2012 apprentice and mentor of the BBC Radio 3 World Routes Academy. It will be announced that a UK-based, 19 year old self-taught virtuoso will become the youngest member of the World Routes Academy. His or her mentor is flying in specially from the other side of the world to be at the BBC Radio Theatre. Launched in 2010, the BBC Radio 3 World Routes Academy aims to support and inspire young world music artists by bringing them together with an internationally renowned artist in the same field and belonging to the same tradition. The scheme targets forms of music and musical skills that are under threat to help preserve them.

Tonight's programme broadcasts highlights of the event held in London two days previously. Oud player Khyam Allami and Veena player Hari Sivanesan took part in the World Routes Academy in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
