Meet the Chicago-based Drummer who's opened for Wu-Tang Clan, 50 Cent and Mixmaster Mike. Nicknamed the Beat Scientist, he's the son of a Jazz Drummer before him and a Hungarian folk singer. He also grew up hanging out with his Papa's buddy, saxophone legend Archie Shepp. Presenter Tina Edwards got to chatting with Makaya after his sold out show in London's famous Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club.

We introduce you to Copenhagen's Nanna B who's recording her album with help from Anderson .Paak and Mndsgn, shake it with a Brazilian-Gospel reissue from Mr Bongo,
and give the album of London's Ashley Henry a spin to celebrate its vinyl release.
