Music Planet brings the WOMAD experience into the studio with live sets by some of the artists who would have been playing at the festival this weekend, including Italian collective Amaraterra with pizzica music from the country’s south-eastern region, Welsh guitarist Gwenifer Raymond – specialist in the American primitive fingerstyle – and Electric Jalaba – a fusion of traditional gnawa and electronic dance and featuring the vocals and guimbri playing of Simo Lagnawi. Plus new releases from this year’s artists and BBC archive of memorable sets at WOMAD over the years. Presented by Lopa Kothari.

To listen you’ll need to have downloaded the BBC Sounds app or log in to BBC Sounds online.
