DESTINATION MUSIC (article first published : 2006-01-19)

BBC World on DStv offers Destination Music in a 13-part programme every Friday at 22h30 CAT (repeated: Sundays 03h30, Mondays 11h30, Tuesdays 18h30 and Wednesdays 04h30 CAT).

Presented by Andy Kershaw, the award-winning BBC journalist and champion of world music, the series Destination Music delves into the world of music festivals.

Filming at a variety of international events, the series of 13 programmes explores the incredible cultural and social diversity of music and its role as a vehicle of expression in communities around the globe. Through interviews with artists and groups, the series uncovers the stories behind the music and examines wider issues such as the impact of globalisation on world music.

Among the festivals featured are Sacred Music Festival (Fes, Morocco); Irish Folk Music Festival (Ballyshannon, Ireland); Mariachi Festival (Spain); International Jazz Festival (Cuba); Dhow Countries Festival (Zanzibar) and the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival (New York).

The series also travels to Spain, Canada, Mexico, India and Norway.
