Gilles Peterson Worldwide Radio

What This Is: The BBC Radio 6 host and head of Worldwide FM has long been a supporter of underground jazz, funk, soul, and world music. He looks to “explore and tie together the shape-shifting diversity of global music,” a commitment he sticks to on this border- and genre-crossing mix.

What To Expect: A slightly chaotic but culturally rich collection that spans the globe as much as it spans the possibilities of jazz, soul, hip-hop, and dance music. You’ll discover some hot newcomers experimenting with colorful sounds and samples, alongside a few vintage classics from established vets of free jazz, Afrobeat, rap, and more.
