In this edition of WorldBeatUK, Glyn Phillips takes us off in "New Directions" as he guides us through the latest new and recent releases. There's quite an emphasis on Brazilian music throughout and in particular Glyn features four tracks from the latest album (Leve) by Brazilian songstress Flavia Bittencourt.
There's also tango from Lebanon(!), afrobeat from France and Blues from Brum! And you can also discern a 'new directions' theme moving through the song and album titles, from Bim Bam Orchestra's Soul Train and Rise from Break Your Border, through Lil Ian Goodsman's Key To The Highway, Rhiannon Giddens's Freedom Highway and Steve Ajao's Crossroads to Look Both Ways by the UK's Steamchicken!
Join Glyn on a journey around the world of music - always in new directions!
