The Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, Va., hosted live performances for World Cafe's Sense of Place episodes this past week.

All this week, World Cafe has been taking you on a tour of the Charlottesville, Va., music scene with our Sense Of Place series. Next month we'll continue our musical tour of Virginia with Sense Of Place: Richmond.

Today we're exploring both cities with Desiré Moses, managing producer, music writer and host at our affiliate station WNRN in Charlottesville. Desiré will give you a heads up on the artists coming out of central Virginia you should keep an eye on over the months to come.

Hear it all in the player above, and explore our Sense Of Place: Virginia playlist below.
