Music Planet at WOMAD

Lopa Kothari presents a live edition from the globe's leading festival of world music, from the festival site at Charlton Park in Wiltshire.

Lopa Kothari presents a live edition from the globe's leading festival of world music, taking place this weekend at Charlton Park in Wiltshire. Live recordings tonight include sets by Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino with the pizzica music of southern Italy, Trinidad and Tobago's Calypso Rose, and the UK's own Vula Viel, the trio featuring the Ghanaian gyil xylophone of Bex Burch. And from our backstage session tent we hear from the Saharan Tuarag group Les Filles de Illighadad, Israeli-Ethiopian singer Gili Yalo and the Iberi Choir of Georgia. Also tonight, our weekly Road Trip takes us to Belize with record producer Ivan Duran.

Radio 3 celebrates twenty years at WOMAD, with live sets and highlights from the Open Air and Charlie Gillett Stages as well as exclusive back-stage tent sessions. The BBC's coverage continues over the weekend with Cerys Matthews on 6 Music on both Saturday and Sunday, as well as upcoming programmes on BBC World Service.
