[Listen to Wo' Pop in the streaming archive]

Darek Mazzone

Wo-Pop is a 3 hour look into what used to be called "World Music" I call it "Modern Global Music" because it encompasses all the current musical genres while being deeply engaged in the sounds and ideas of each city or region.

You will find Brazilian D&B, French and Cuban Hip Hop, South African Kwaito, Bhangra and Bollywood from Bombay and London, Malabax from Senegal, Ragga Dub from Brixton and Tokyo, and anything else that producers create from the 6 corners of the world.

I have the great pleasure of interviewing these artists and playing their tracks before they go public. It’s a great show that always surprises and hopefully inspires you to collect stamps. (passport stamps that is)
