Tim presents the 360 degree radio show – a perfect excuse for him to explore the full circle of music the world has to offer.

“It’s not world music anymore…” he says “…or even folk. What we have is a world of music and I love exploring it.There’s Columbian music coming out of London and Mexican sounds from Italy there is limitless potential for music and it does not recognise boundaries”

Unrestricted by a brief, genre or style he plays whatever appeals to him but he has a deep love of music from the African and South American continent. Rhythm and melody are prime and high class musicianship a passion.He is constantly sourcing the latest releases worldwide and exploring the archives and back catalogues of labels and the web.

Tim is also a musician – playing guitar and percussion with bands and as a session player. Find out more on Tim’s Soundcloud page (external link).
