Ayo lights up the studio

Singer-songwriter Ayo joins us on set for an impromptu concert. She also takes the time to chat about her fourth album "Ticket to the World", how she juggles life on the road and why she feels like it's time to start rapping. Today, the folk-soul chart-topper is a sell-out act in France but she says her arrival in Paris many years ago was something of an accident.

We also take a look at a museum in the desert of Arizona which is home to 15,000 musical instruments; as the largest collection of its kind, it's something of a Mecca for music lovers.
