Rita's World Episode 56 Thu, 2016-11-17 16:49

This edition of Rita’s World showcases bright new voices from Turkey, Canada, Mauritania, the UK and beyond. They are delving into their traditions and sometimes other folks’ cultures to create compelling new music, all framed in a staggering array of genres. They try on Jazz, folk, psychedelic rock or get back to basics with ancient vocal traditions. The veterans get a look in too, The legendary Bonga is back with a new album and the Analog Africa crew have unearthed Cabo Verde treasure with Bitori.

The EFG London Jazz Festival is rocking the capital – get down to Mwalimu Express for a belting Afro Impro session on the 20th of November at the Rich Mix
