The A-Z of World Music

Part of BBC Four’s World Music Season



This film is an A-Z from country to country exploring music from all around the world, as seen previously on a spectrum of television programmes. There's material from the BBC archive, including performance and documentary footage from a huge variety of shows, from Later With Jools Holland and Top Of The Pops to Rhythms of the World and The Nana Mouskouri Show.

So a touch of nostalgia for some then, mixed with new sounds from across the globe for others, this programme is a chance to catch clips from the likes of Ofra Haza, Khaled, Angélique Kidjo, The Trio Bulgarka, Celia Cruz, Fela Kuti and Mory Kanté.
