Jaune Toujours in session with Lopa Kothari

Jaune Toujours in session, plus a Road Trip from Uganda and music from classic artist Seijin Noborikawa.

Lopa Kothari presents a specially recorded studio session by Belgian band Jaune Toujours, whose melting pot approach takes in Latin, reggae, punk and Balkan influences. In this week's Road Trip, James Isabirye is our guide to the royal music traditions of Uganda and how they've evolved in recent years, and our classic artist is Okinawan folk singer and sanshin player Seijin Noborikawa. Plus a selection of the latest releases from across the globe including new music from Dudu Tassa and the Kuwaitis, Blick Bassy and Nerija.

Listen to the world - Music Planet, Radio 3's new world music show presented by Lopa Kothari and Kathryn Tickell, brings us the best roots-based music from across the globe - with live sessions from the biggest international names and the freshest emerging talent; classic tracks and new releases, and every week a bespoke Road Trip from a different corner of the globe, taking us to the heart of its music and culture. Whether it's traditional Indian ragas, Malian funk, UK folk or Cuban jazz, you'll hear it on Music Planet.
