Mary Ann Kennedy - Lucia Pulido in a Live Session

Mary Ann Kennedy presents new music plus Colombian folk singer Lucia Pulido in a live session. Plus the latest from BBC Introducing and music from the Radio 3 World Music Archive.

Mary Ann Kennedy with new music from across the globe, plus Colombian folk singer Lucia Pulido in a live studio session.

Lucia's velvety voice blends naturally with her ensemble, a mix of traditional and modern instruments, as she experiments with Colombia's rich folk music, including Caribbean rhythms such as cumbia and bullerengue from the Atlantic Coast, but also currulaos from the Pacific Coast as well as joropos of the Colombian Eastern plains. Lucia's written songs for this kind of modern fusion, opening the doors to the influences of jazz and world music, but her repertoire also includes all-time standards as well as material by contemporary composers.

Plus the latest from BBC Introducing, and another dip into the Radio 3 World Music Archive.
World on 3 sessions are available for download as a podcast via the home page.
