About the show
Live radio broadcast exploring the global roots of blues with bluemaster Robert Hokum. The blues is possibly the only truly 'global' art form. in almost every city in the world you can find someone somewhere bashing out a 12-bar. With influences including Native American music, Arabic melodies, Chain Gang rhythms and European folk song as well as African cultures, musicians are still finding new ways to interpret it. Robert Hokum will be joined by members of his cross-cultural blues project, Blues Sans Frontier, Mehboob Nadeem and Sam Kelly.
