Lopa Kothari and Kathryn Tickell present the first of a weekend of broadcasts from the globe's leading festival of world music, live from Charlton Park in Wiltshire. With highlights from the Siam Tent set by Bamba Wassoulou Groove, a band formed by members of Mali's legendary Super Rail Band; La Mambanegra, who come from Colombia's salsa capital Cali, also in the Siam Tent; and from the BBC Radio 3 Charlie Gillett Stage there's Volosi, a mix of classical string players with folk musicians from the Poland's Carpathian Mountains. Plus interviews and a live visit to the Radio 3 Session Tent, starting off more than ten hours of live broadcasting across the WOMAD weekend.

Radio 3 returns to WOMAD with more live broadcasting than ever before, with live sets and highlights from the main stages as well as the BBC Radio 3 Charlie Gillett Stage, where Radio 3 has invited artists from across the globe to perform, many making UK Festival debuts. The weekend includes a Sunday morning simulcast with Cerys on 6, artists from BBC Introducing, and video performances from the Radio 3 Session Tent.
