RootsWorld Radio: Cliff Furnald

The final Taint 1.0 episode of RootsWorld Radio.


In the light of the recent vote in The United Kingdom to leave the European Union, and the current nationalist and isolationist climate developing in many aspects of American politics of late, I decided  choose some songs relevant to current events, and dedicated to a sense of international cooperation and collaboration. This program includes music from artists who have always reached across borders to find common ground.

Artists will include Maggie Holland and June tabor, who will open and close the program, along with the collaboration of SANS – Ian Blake (England/Australia), Tigran Aleksanyan (Armenia), Sanna Kurki-Suonio (Finland) and Andrew Cronshaw (England), More songs from Dobrek Bistro (Poland, Russia, Brazil, Austria, Mali and Burkina Faso), Yarinistan & The Oyster Band (Germany/Turkey/England), Eva Quartet & Hector Zazou (Bulgaria/France), Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road ensemble with Toumani Diabate and Balla Kouyate (Mali). Trio Ifriqiya (Algeria/France/Congo),  The Amilal Ensemble (Mongolia/Iran/Hungary);  and Kamilya Jubran &  Werner Hasler (Palestine/Switzerland)
