Latest global radio show with new sounds from the Sahara, Brazil, India and Ireland

Aziza Brahim: Voice of the Sahara

Another peripatetic mix of the latest global sounds and reissues from theartsdesk’s resident world music fanatic Peter Culshaw.

The radio show features a mindbendingly eclectic mix from Colombia, Louisiana, Angola to Brazil, with some new folk from The Gloaming, alt country from Sam Outlaw, bonkers psychedelia from India, and a couple of old numbers from Ali Farka Touré and the Neville Brothers. An Easter sonic feast.
