ABOUT MUSIC VOYAGER
Music Voyager is a music and travel broadcast series (television/cable, broadband, in-flight and mobile) that invites viewers to discover the exciting sounds of the planet. Host Jacob Edgar is an explorer, but he doesn't search for lost cities or ancient ruins. He's on the quest for a different kind of treasure...music. As an ethnomusicologist and world music record producer, Edgar travels the globe hunting for the best songs the world has to offer, and he suffers through some of the worst...so you don't have to.
Along the way, he's rewarded with a backstage pass to concert halls, street festivals, recording studios and rehearsal rooms. With local musicians as his guide, Edgar tastes exotic and occasionally ghastly food, visits off-the-beaten path attractions and parties the night away to amazing concerts at hidden venues that only the locals know. Join Music Voyager for unexpected adventures and surprising discoveries that unveil the magic, mystery and music of far off lands.
The Music Voyager series is produced by Los Angeles-based Tantra (www.tantraww.com), whose credits include The Music Box, The Abraham Song, The RockStar Diaries, as well as numerous music videos and live music projects across four continents. Tantra specializes in leading edge multiple-platform productions that expand the role of traditional media to include broadband, interactive and other cutting edge experiences for its target audience.
Host Jacob Edgar's travels as the music researcher for acclaimed label Putumayo World Music and president of successful indie label Cumbancha have taken him to dozens of countries and hundreds of the world's greatest international music festivals, showcases and performance venues in search of exceptional musical talents.
