Asheville-based world fusion trio Free Planet Radio celebrates the release of their debut CD New Bedouin Dance. Combining musical ideas and instruments from around the globe, Free Planet Radio consists of Chris Rosser on Indian dotar, Turkish cumbus, guitars, piano, and melodica; River Guerguerian on Middle Eastern frame drums and doumbek, cajon, drumset, and other world percussion instruments; and Eliot Wadopian on electric and string basses.

Not only have they firmly established themselves on the stages and studios of Asheville's rich local music scene, but individually they have performed around the world with such groups as Paul Winter Consort, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, BBC Concert Orchestra, Sophie B. Hawkins, David Wilcox, Judy Collins and Glen Velez; have opened for John Mayer, Shawn Mullins, Nickel Creek, John Gorka and Tom Rush; and have appeared on over 200 recordings.
