Thorsten Bednarz

Born and grown up in east Berlin, I started to work at the radio in the mid 80s. I came to what is called “worldmusic” in the early 90s. Since that time I managed to meet and interview many artists from Europe, Africa Asia and North- and Latinamerica. As an average record collector, I am always searching for the best groove. My aim is to convince my listeners by the pure joy of music, where ever it might come from. I am working for german national radio Deutschlandradio Kultur for almost 20 years now, doing a monthly show on the global grooves called „Tonart Weltmusik“. But you may find me behind the DJ turntables as well…
