WOMEX: New World Music via Europe

Hear this show now:

Rob is joined by print journalists Tom Pryor (Global Rhythm) and Anastasia Tsioulcas (Billboard). All three attended WOMEX, the pacesetting world music convention held every October in Europe (this year in Essen, Germany). They clue us in on what's hot and what's not, and share new musical discoveries.
