Lopa Kothari live at the BBC Blue Tent in Edinburgh, part of Radio 3's coverage at the Festival and Fringe, with a concert of World Music including Trip, an exciting new Scottish band featuring keyboard, whistle and bodhran - a BBC Introducing act; plus Turkish composer and performer Oguz Kaplangi bringing traditional percussion instruments, guitars and electronic samples, and mixing them with Scottish bagpipes, performed by Annie Grace: it's material inspired from the incidental music to the play 'Rhinoceros', shown at the EIF; also, South Korean Ensemble Su performing on traditional instruments, among them a zither, a one-string fiddle and Asian percussion, blending it all with a cello and keyboards for a pinch of Western sound as well. And closing the show, leading the 'New Wave' of traditional Scottish fiddlers, virtuoso Ryan Young accompanied on the guitar by Jenn Butterworth.
