In this episode of WorldBeatUK, presenter Glyn Phillips catches up on three week's worth of new releases of world music! Expect to hear brilliant Bosnian sevdah music from the featured album of the week, Live In Mostar by Divanhana, as well as mid-70s Congolese grooves from Franco & TPOK Jazz and some simply fabulous ring-shouting from Georgia (the state, not the country!)'s McIntosh County Shouters!
There's also the distinctive and idiosyncratic voices of Malcolm Holcombe, Pierce Edens, Rachel Baiman and Miriam Makeba and loads of great folk, country, Tex-mex and other americana also from the grammy-winning O'Connor Band, Jim Keaveny, O&O and Alastair Moock.
Then there's late 70s/early 80s Cameroonian makossa, electrifying merengue from the Dominican Republic, roots reggae from St Pauls in Bristol, groove-filled Pacific marimba from Ecuador and Colombia, Brazilian ear-candy from Nina Miranda and Gringa - and some fabulous fusions from Addictive TV and Found Sound Nation!
