Mary Ann Kennedy with new tracks from across the globe, plus a live session with MaLituanie, a mix of musicians from Mali and Lithuania.
MaLituanie brings together folk musicians from Lithuania with visiting and expat musicians from Mali. Malian ngoni player Baba Sissoko and rock musician Viktoras Diawara join Baltic psaltery player Indre Jurgeleviciute, duduk player Saulius Petreikis and Laurita Peleniute who plays ocarina and 'water percussion'. What unites them is of course the universal themes of songs - love, protection for the environment and the eternal cycle of life.
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.
