Catherine Russell, Queen of swing

In today’s show we meet jazz and blues singer Catherine Russell. She explains her weakness for trad jazz standards and talks about her musical family background.


We also take a look at "Paris 1900", a new show at the Petit Palais here in Paris. The exhibition takes visitors back in time, to the Belle Epoque of Paris’ much-lamented golden age. And getting down in Ghana : we learn about the dance craze that’s sweeping dance floors in Africa and beyond, with a report on "Azonto".
