The return of our dynamic duo, as ever going beyond global

Xylouris White: modernising the lute

After something of a schedule disruption due to the summer festival season (although watch out for some specials recorded over that period), Peter and Joe are back refreshed, renewed and ready to take you around the world and beyond again with their regular shows in partnership with MeatTransMission in Shoreditch.

This time round there's Greek-Australian lute-and-drums improv, Bollywood electro-disco, doomy Nordic torch songs, southern Gothic trap beats, Afrobeat, acid house, desert dub and a whole lot more. Dive in!
