NPR’s The World Cafe gets out “new and significant music and the artists who create it.” You can get livestreams and discover songs, as well as get recent sessions. The most recent is ‘Flowers’ for Kathleen Edwards.
BBC Music/World offers even greater range. DNA with DJ Edu is one of the most popular of all their World Shows.
National Geographic Music is also comprehensive, providing more information and background on particular countries and artists as well as the music. Here’s one from Sidestepper, a Colombian artist, who mixes cumbia, vallenato, and salsa.
Putumayo World Music provides collections of world music, often by themes. (Putumayo is, of course, located in Colombia.) They also have a weekly one-hour radio program.
