Radio: World Music Awards 2005

Presenter: Radio 3

Each year BBC Radio 3 holds the World Music Awards for the best world music artists, normally they announce the nominees and the winners, then have a big party separate from the idea of giving out awards where a selection of the artists who win or are nominated play. This year that gig/party was last night, tonight Radio 3 are playing the highlights between the hours of 6 and 8pm UK time. Which is in the next half hour, play just not building towards the show. Last year was the first year i was particularly conscious of this event, and hearing promotions on the run up to it revealed for me a certain interest in world music, the eclectic mix of cultures, particularly with those artists who are incorporating state of the art technology/techniques into the process of more traditional sounds.
