Radio Favela Episode Two Fri, 2010-11-05 21:24
Quality guests galore in the studio for the second RADIO FAVELA, people. First up, a couple of bangers by VOLTAIRE & JORGE BEN selected telepathically by a man called TCHIKY AL’DENTE all the way from Paris va Rio (…how DOES he do that?). Then flower power mamas HANNAH & THE HEARTBREAK play live for us, previewing their gig at the venue on Tuesday 30th November and let us into some North London secrets. Then a bit later two lovely ladies from the MARACATU MAFUA collective give us the lowdown on Brasilian roots music beyond samba. As usual, those two buffoon presenters GRINGO and MADERA lower the tone considerably, talking rubbish whilst playing some fine music by ASHEBER AND THE AFRIKAN REVOLUTION, ADAM KESHER, KEITH RICHARDS & GREGORY ISAACS). How do they do that?
