During the Welsh Showcase at WOMEX 2010 Catrin Finch was introduced to the audience as the “Queen of Harps.”

Coming from a nation of singers and harpists (as she mentions of Wales in her brief intro) this is a moniker indeed, and one she lives up to.

The song presented here is only one of a varied program she performed, in which she displayed not only a traditional sensibility, but plenty of adventure, too.

    Truly a delightful performance. I wanted to hear more from this artist. Beautiful introduction to some music I would not have encountered otherwise. Thank you!

Welcome!

Here’s where you’ll find my weekly original world music video blogs that appear on Huffington Post, as well as an archive starting in April of 2009.

This is also the place where you will find video that is exclusive to my site. I’ve traveled to places like Uzbekistan, Morocco, and Taiwan and no matter where I go I have found amazingly talented and creative people working in every genre from the deepest traditions to the cutting edge.

It’s been incredibly rewarding to interview them and to capture some of what they do on video. Enjoy what you see and hear, and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback.
