WorldBeatUK with Glyn Phillips - Bonfire Beats (06/11/2017)

Playing tracks by

Ikebe Shakedown, The KutiMangoes, Toot Ard, TootArd, Zara McFarlane and more.

On Bonfire Beats, Glyn Phillips lights the blue touch paper on an explosive display of music guaranteed to warm your soul and ignite your mind!

The featured album this week is the long-awaited Havana Meets Kingston - an incredible melting pot of top-flight Cubans and Jamaicans (Sly & Robbie, Barbarito Torres, Ernest Ranglin, Felix Baloy et al!). No less than 5 tracks from that on this show!

There's also sparkling new music from Golan Heights band, TootArd, Croatia's Astrid Kuljanic, English folker Kirsty Merryn and American singer-songwriter Beth Whitney.

Whizzing and popping in amongst all this there are re-issues of old 60 albums from the Bo St Runners, Philwit & Pegasus and Johnny Farfisa - as well as new eps from Argentina's Tremor and Cuba's Daymé Arocena.

And to warm you all up, there's Reggae and Soul from UK's Zara McFarlane and Germany's Soul Session - and a very special sneak preview from the Finnish Sami singers, Solju, of their 2018 album!
