This show was 26th in the global folk chart.
On today's show, we're flying off to the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan to hear some unbelievable artists. Theatre-Maker, Naoko Okouchi (who has worked closely with the great Director Yokio Ninagawa) joins me to choose a powerful track from Southern Japan and then for a very different second half we're heading over to the Land of Persia, Iran. Joining me there will be Stratford Theatre Royal's Artistic Director and playwright, Nadia Fall, who was recently working on her new production of 'Welcome To Iran', to play a track she's chosen.
Also here is a link to Marjan Farsad's youtube video that I mention in the show:
Featuring artists: Shin’ichi Kinoshita, The Fishmans, The Okinawa Tribe, Ajate, Dariush, Kiosk, Kayhan Kaylor and more.
