Real World Records and the associated WOMAD festivals around the world have been instrumental in bringing global music to a broader audience over the past quarter century. Think Toto La Momposino, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, AfroCelt Sound System, Hukwe Zawose…and the list goes on. Now Peter Gabriel’s label has released a 3-CD compilation, and a brand new album by Garifuna artist Aurelio Martinez. This week’s show features a wide variety of Real World tunes, and a conversation with Real World label manager Amanda Jones about the past and future of Real World and world music.
