On this week's WorldBeatUK (the first proper one of 2017) Glyn Phillips takes a listen to some of the world music albums that were released towards the end of 2016 , but didn't make it onto last year's shows, because they were too late, but still warrant a good listen!
Expect to hear Beninese afrobeat, South African Xhopera, British Blues, Colombian Cumbia, Puerto Rican jibaro, Moroccan dub-jazz and Brummy bossa - alongside the new albums by legends such as South Africa's Hugh Masekela and Ethiopia's Mulatu Astatke, re-releases of 1970s Uruguayan sub-tropical music and Brazilian soul-pop, and some Czech indy, Texan latin jazz and loads of fascinating fusions... to name but a few!
Start the year as you mean to go on - with fabulous music in your lives!
