Justin Adams on Co-Producing Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino's LP Meridiana and His Many World Musical Adventures

If you're a fan of music from around the globe, you've probably heard guitarist and producer Justin Adams' stellar work: With Tinariwen, Lo'Jo, Rachid Taha, Juldeh Camara; not to mention Robert Plant, Sinead O'Connor, Jah Wobble - and many, many others.

Now his magic touch has helped take Meridiana (Ponderosa Music and Art), the new album he co-produced by Italy's Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (CGS), to the top of the Transglobal world music chart.

On this week's show, we meet Justin and hear his work with CGS and much more!

Hey, Rob and all the spanners of boundaries. Back from a day on the waters. Sixty-eight fellow humans taken out and shown the glory of paddling on a Superfund sight and brought safely back to shore. Hot. And I have sunscreen in my eyes.

Hey, chresti, Ken, Megaroni, Mister D, DZB, Shelby.
