I fell asleep with the radio on - BAD habit - and woke about 3 am to find myself bathed in magical music. It was Charlie Gillett's world music programme on the BBC World Service, this week a celebration of the work of multi-lingual academic/producer/catalyst Lucy Duran with Malian kora player Toumani Diabate and others. You can hear the programme here, but only until Wednesday 6 April, when it will be replaced by something new - and no doubt also wonderful. And listen here to the programme Lucy Duran often presents on BBC Radio 3.

hey jean, thanks so much for stopping by, your lovely words, and i love that we share so much, especially African music which just makes life worth living and bodies worth shaking and keeping moving.....! a bientot. rx
Lucy Duran's show is great. I haven't listened to it in a while so thank you for reminding me (thank goodness for falling asleep with BBC World Service on!). Best wishes, Planethalder (also in London).
