Presented by Michael Ormiston.
Music of the World from the Heart of Frome.
I’m a multi-instrumentalist specialising in Mongolian Khöömii Overtone Singing and have been interested in local music from over the planet before the “world music” tag came about. Along with performing and teaching, I review central Asian and Siberian music releases for Songlines Magazine and teach Khöömii at the annual SOAS summer school in London. After moving to Frome last year it seemed a good idea to share my knowledge and vast collection of Global sounds, as well as getting to know and publicise local musicians, musical instrument makers and people whose lives had been changed by experiencing music and cultures from other countries. Each programme will feature an in-depth interview from which the show will be built around. Please contact me with your stories, musical adventures and wonderful instruments. I am happy to come round and interview you or please come to the Frome FM studio at the Town Hall.
