La Yegros in session with Kathryn Tickell

'Feminine, joyous and tropical' Buenos Aires-based singer La Yegros brings explosive South American folk beats to the Music Planet studio in an exclusive live session.

Her live shows are described as "Feminine, joyous and tropical. It’s a revolution you can dance to.” and the Buenos Aires based singer La Yegros brings that explosive energy, her unique voice and South American folk beats to the Music Planet studio in an exclusive live session - expect fireworks!

Kathryn Tickell will be playing the best new roots discs and classics, and there's a Road Trip to the Philippines as Jose Semblante Buenconsejo introduces us to some of the oldest music in existence right up to the urban music of Manila today.

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.

Funding for the field recordings of traditional Philippine music in this episode was made possible through a 2016 National Research Council of the Philippines grant titled Resilient Music at the Margins.
