Music

With John Uhlemann

John Uhlemann brings you 2 hours of strangely beautiful folk and traditional music from Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, with occasional forays into the Middle East and Western Europe.

Pirin Bulgaria - old and new

This southwestern corner of Bulgaria has a more lively music scene than could ever be imagined from such a small area, and the melodies are so beguiling that folks from other areas are enamored of the sound.
