Lopa Kothari with the latest releases from across the globe, and a live session from Appalachian string band The Hot Seats.

The Hot Seats are a five-piece from Richmond, Virginia, with their own twisted blend of American roots music. With influences ranging from Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs to George Formby and Frank Zappa, their intention is "to keep the role of traditional musician as entertainer and commentator alive and kicking".

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.
