LE MONDE EST UN VILLAGE

Since 1998 already... Years spent listening, broadcasting, recording, offering. People from next door and further away. People that are often generous, anonymous or well known. People that are the motors of creation or consideration, responsible for themselves and others, for their people or a community.

So we engage in discussion, and music flows through presentations, interviews, musical recordings, live shows, reports from abroad.

It's about playing live, and releasing CD compilations that showcase artists at the dawn of their -we hope- fruitful careers. It's about the many tribal, associative and cultural connections.

Le Monde est un Village (The World is a Village) is all that and more, with the clear hope of exposing Men and Women in what they have that is unique and singular. Diversity is on our path every night on La Première and RTBF International radios.

And the space between 7 and 9 pm is crammed with Cultures and Musics from Elsewhere. The mission is infinite as the world is wide, even seen from here!

From 8 to 9 pm, our rendez-vous becomes thematic: Monday: Le Grand Voyage, takes us for a big journey Tuesday: Urbanista, or the Musics of the Cities Wednesday: Rezo Radio presents the work of other radios Thursday: Acoustic sessions live in our studio Friday: Reggae

Le Monde est un Village, daily broadcast between 7 and 9 pm from Monday to Friday.
