This week on World of Music we’re diving head first into the music of Lebabon, Palestine, Israel, Iraq, Iran, and Syria. Israeli artists like Meira Asher and Idan Raichel use their music to work for non-violent solutions. Others like Ali El Dik (Syria), Walid Toufic (Lebanon) and Le Trio Joubran (Palestine) create music that both embodies and furthers the unique voice of their culture.
World of Music is a universally curious, non-partisan musical summit of blues, poetry, jazz, and international music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator. Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
