Adele performs for a small group of lucky fans at the Santa Monica Bay Woman's Club in Santa Monica, CA. Performing such hits as Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You from 21 and Chasing Pavements from her Grammy winning album 19.

Dubbed timeless by Entertainment Weekly, the record is currently in its thirteenth week at no.1 on the Billboard 200.

Music Voyager is on a Colombian journey from the ranches and farmlands of Valledupar through the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range and on to the Caribbean coast. The small city of Valledupar is the cradle of vallenato, which is a rustic, folksy and distinctly Colombian music style. There, we meet up with Fonseca, one of Colombia's biggest stars, who has incorporated the vallenato style into the tropipop sound for which he is famous. We meet with the Rey de Reyes (King of Kings) of the accordion, attend a wild street party, visit a restaurant that serves unusual wildlife, and join the adorable Los Ninos de Vallenato for a performance in the city's main square. Next, Music Voyager travels to a small coastal village to meet with a former paramilitary soldier turned vallenato singer, who serenades us in a fishing boat in the picturesque harbor. Finally we end up in the port city of Barranquilla, where steamy, tropical Afro-Colombian beats dominate the music scene. Singer Erika Munoz takes us to a rehearsal for Barranquilla's famous carnival and gives an impromptu performance of her African-influenced sound. Colombian legend Joe Arroyo performs with his full 14-piece band in a commandeered library. It's a journey that reveals the amazing diversity of Colombia's geography, culture and music.

Music Voyager starts its Tennessee journey in Bristol, a city in the north-east corner of the state that proudly claims to be the Birthplace of Country Music. We visit Georgia Warren, who at 96 years young is the last surviving participant of the legendary "Bristol Sessions" of 1927, which introduced the sounds of Appalachia to a wide audience and set the foundation for the growing popularity of country music across the nation. While in Bristol, we catch a street performance by musical nomads Megan Jean and the KFB and check out the Knoxville band the Black Lillies performing at one of Bristol's many outdoor concerts. We explore Bristol's other sites, including the Bristol Motor Speedway, as our host Jacob Edgar tests out a pace car on one of NASCAR's most exciting tracks. From Bristol, Music Voyager heads to Knoxville for a visit to the legendary "Blue Plate Special", a live radio program that features the best in local music. Singer-songwriters Scott Miller and RB Morris show us around their hometown. We also learn how far Appalachian music has evolved with an unplugged performance by up-and-coming country stars the Roys. Finally, we pass through the revitalised city of Chattanooga, home to the New Binkley Brothers who reveal that old time music isn't just for old folks. We also meet local dulcimer wizard Dan Landrum who performs with the country rock band Yarn.

Ask the average person what they know about Jamaican music and the first thing they will think of is Bob Marley. While the legacy of Marley is alive and well, in this episode, Jacob Edgar visits with some of today's most popular reggae artists who are keeping roots reggae going strong. Edgar's travels to St Thomas, a small city east of Kingston, to visit with Tarrus Riley, one of the hottest young reggae singers. After a walk through a local market, Tarrus takes Edgar down bumpy back roads for an unplugged performance next to the one-room shack by the sea that he lived in for seven years. After catching Tarrus at his star-studded record release party and a blazing show at Jamaica's biggest music festival, Sumfest, Edgar journeys to the hills outside of Kingston for a visit with reggae star Richie Spice. They explore Richie Spice's family farm and discuss the social role of reggae, what it means to be a Rastafarian and the joys of raising bunny rabbits. The episode ends with a visit with Etana, a young singer who blends reggae and neo-soul who has become hugely popular in Jamaica. Edgar and Etana discuss the struggles of women to make their voices heard in the Jamaican music industry, and Etana and her band treat the viewer to a stunning acoustic performance on the picturesque Goldeneye beach.

Music Voyager travels to Jerusalem and northern Israel to discover the sights and sounds of a region rich with ancient history and religious significance. Israel is a land of contrasts and conflicts: between tradition and modernity, war and peace, spirituality and secularism. The popular band Hadag Nahash blends hip-hop, funk and soul with politically expedient Hebrew lyrics to draw attention to the complex issues facing Israeli society. The band gives Music Voyager a stripped down performance at the picturesque Mahane Yehuda market in Jersualem, then invites us for drinks and conversation at the lead singer's pub. We visit leading Shephardic singer Yasmin Levy at her home on the outskirts of the city, where she performs songs in the Spanish-derived Ladino language. Leading singer-songwriter David Broza invites to visit a village devoted to peace between Arabs and Jews that was founded by his grandfather. Broza performs amidst the vines of his family winery, then takes us to an informal jam session with Palestinian musicians in East Jerusalem. We travel to the Galilee region of northern Israel for a visit to Tzfat, an epicenter of the mystical Kaballah and the world's largest klezmer music festival. Music Voyager journeys to the ancient and scenic port of Akko, before meeting up with Israeli star Mosh Ben-Ari for an unplugged performance in the magnificent Roman Theater at Caesarea. Mosh takes us to his home and farm where we learn of his love for the land and the importance of agriculture in the history and identity of Israelis.
