Desert Slide, Otava Yo and Amaraterra

Lopa Kothari and Kathryn Tickell present music from Womad 2016. With Desert Slide, Otava Yo and Amaraterra, plus interviews and a visit to the Radio 3 Session Tent.

Live from Charlton Park in Wiltshire, more live sets and recorded highlights with Lopa Kothari and Kathryn Tickell.

Direct from the Siam Tent, Indian classical music mixed with Rajasthani desert folk from Desert Slide, featuring Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, a virtuoso of the Indian slide guitar; and live from the BBC Radio 3 Charlie Gillett Stage, Otava Yo from St. Petersburg, a band blending Russia's folk heritage with more than a hint of punk rock; and highlights from BBC Introducing band Amaraterra, Italian expats performing the ecstatic tarantella music of Southern Italy. Plus interviews and a visit to the Radio 3 Session Tent.

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.
