Glyn Phillips's WorldBeatUK has now gone monthly on Brum Radio - but still features the best NEW releases in world music from around the globe! On this month's show, Glyn looks at what's out in both January and February 2018 (as well as taking a look at a couple of latecomers from the end of 2017).
Expect to hear new releases from Cuba, Puerto Rico, The USA, The UK, Finland, South Africa, Jamaica, Israel, Brazil and elsewhere!
There's a focus on protest songs in the latter part of the show with a new album from the iconic Buffy Sainte-Marie and new releases from contemporary protesters about the state of The States as well as Turkish psychedelic folk pioneer Selda Bagcan - and earlier on we hear from the mother and daughter duo, Solju, singing about the changing times ahead for the Sami people of Arctic Europe (ahead of Sami National Day on Feb 6th).
There are some great new albums of British folk from Luke Jackson, Damien O'Kane and the cast of The Transports - and much more!!
