Mary Ann Kennedy with new music from across the globe, plus a live session with Ghazalaw, a band who mix the music of Wales and India.

Ghazalaw emerged from a collaboration between Mumbai singer Tauseef Akhtar and Welsh singer-songwriter Gwyneth Glyn - the name merges Indian song style 'ghazal' with the Welsh word 'alaw' which can mean melody, or harmony. Together with other leading musicians from India and from the Welsh folk scene, the band has played concerts across India, including the Desert Festival in Delhi and the Ghazal Bahaar in Mumbai, as well as back in Wales. They have now come together again for their current tour of the UK.
