This week on WWNO: New Orleans Inside the Arts, we talk with renowned violin virtuoso Regina Carter. The multi-genre violinist will perform works from her most recent release on Sony Masterworks, Southern Comfort, in concert at the Contemporary Arts Center. Ms. Carter is considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation – a designation which doesn't quite paint the picture.  As a result of her curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty brought to every stop taken on her full musical journey, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a "genius grant"). 

Inside the Arts will also check out Cuba's newest dance export, Malpaso Dance Company, heads to the Crescent City. We talk with founder and artistic director Osnel Delgado. And, we round out with a fingerpickin' concert as acclaimed New Orleans guitarist Jimmy Robinson joins the Bruskers Duo who are in town from Italy. Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.
