Radio M

Radio M brings you music from WOMEX 2015

The biggest annual gathering of the world music industry just wrapped up and as in years past there was a broad array of music from around the globe. Since 1994, the World Music Expo (WOMEX) has been showcasing the huge swath of musical styles from Togo to Finland, Spain to China.

This year the global music love fest was held in Budapest Hungary and featured a modern spin on Polish folk music, Chinese "folk-metal", Haitian voudou percussion along with a dose of electronica and DJ sounds.

This week on Radio M we bring you some of those artists as well as the man who won this year's WOMEX Award; Senegalese artist Cheik Lo. You'll also get some disco from the Carribean, early Fela and a shot of Italian horror film music.
