WorldBeatUK with Glyn Phillips - Crows, Bees, Witches & Pigs (15/05/2017)

Glyn Phillips presents Mr Bongo's retrospective The Original Sound of Mali, (70s and 80s), a preview of the new Analog Africa compilation, Pop Makossa (late 70s early 80s Cameroonian makossa with funk and disco overtones) and returns to one of his favourite albums of the moment, Agogo Records's release of Ketan by the Ghanaian hi-life maestro Gyedu-Blay Ambolley.

There's new electro-folklore sounds from Ecuador's Nicola Cruz and Argentina's Dat Garcia, a look back at 2009s Nuevo Sonidos Afro Peruanos by Radiokijada - and a reissue of the very first album by Fruko y sus Tesos (1970)!

Also check out music from quirky London americana band Dana Immanuel & the Stolen Band, smooth jazz bossa from Philadelphia's Ensemble Novo, Brummie bouzouki from Shankara Andy Bole, Canadian country duo Harrow Fair, Canadian latin rockers Battle of Santiago, Estonian folk-rockers Trad.Attack, Sweden's Nils Landgren Funk Unit and French latin funksters Monsalve y los Forajidos!
