Album of the week : Djitoumou from Idrissa Soumaoro on Lusafrica.
Welcome to our first live broadcast since the summer break. With so much music and such little time it was a tough call as to what tracks to include. One album on heavy rotation over the summer is our album of the week, amazingly only Idrissa Soumaoro's second album in a career spanning forty plus years. We also have Two great traditional English ceilidh bands, Tyde who we met at Castle Donnington's Off The Tracks festival and The Monster Celeidh band we met at Sarawak's Rainforest World Music Festival both going pleasingly well with the North African Chaabi sounds of both Orchestre National de Barbes and Hassan Erraji. Throw in a few new releases and welcome to another eclectic round the world music adventure.
