BBC 4 kicks off a new world music season on Friday August 23 with the documentary How to be a World Music Star that follows the growth of world music since the 80s.
The first instalment of a three-part series traces the careers of the Bhundu Boys, Baaba Maal, Buena Vista Social Club and Mariza in an exploration of what it takes to become a global music star.
Everything you need to know about "World Music" but where afraid to ask.
Had me welded to the screen the whole evening.
Massively looking forward to the Flamenco episode.
On the iPlayer now.
Shall watch it again, this time with pen & paper at the ready.
