Vincent Moon’s musical voyages

What do Arcade Fire, Tom Jones, R.E.M, Phoenix and Vampire Weekend have in common? They’re all musicians who have chosen to break away from the confines of the classic music video for a stripped-back session with today’s guest, Vincent Moon. The nomadic filmmaker tells Catherine Nicholson and France 24’s music critic Mark Thompson why he's gone from shooting impromptu performances to travelling the world documenting little-known musical traditions from Chechnya to Rio.

Also on the show, we’re asking whether Lady Gaga is really planning to open a Michael Jackson museum.

Meanwhile, Ivorian reggae musician with a social conscience Tiken Jah Fakoly is embarking on a new tour of West Africa this week, including some challenging and recently war-torn locations.

Finally, after the Golden Globe awards in Los Angeles, we check out the prize-winning Best Original Song winner by U2, “Ordinary Love”, from the film “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”.
