Listen to the hottest new transcontinental music
Been a while since you checked out the best and latest world music releases? theartsdesk’s global music expert Peter Culshaw's selects the best music released in the last month or so.
His peripatetic wanderings take in hot New Orleans brass, Indian psychedelia, Ethiopian fuzz-tone guitar, Brazilian reggae, English folk, underground Congolese music, a bunch of Italian eccentrics, Senegalese funk and numerous stops in between, including a side project from everyone’s favourite south London rockers Fat White Family. Albums of the moment include those by Blick Bassy, Sacre Delone Cuore, Flavia Coelho, Cheikh Lo, Mbongwana Star and Songhoy Blues.
Recorded in the Meattransmission radio bunker in Shoreditch, with normal co-pilot Joe Muggs otherwise engaged, Peter is flying solo. Enjoy the trip.
