The New Arts Desk Radio Show 5

Lusophone explorations and Africanised country & western this month

Kasaï Allstars: right at home in among The Arts Desk's mix'n'match

Joe and Peter are back with another show of the exotic and out-there, with a heavy leaning towards the Lusophone this time.

Music from Brazil, Angola, Cape Verde and Portugal itself features, including some very serious Brazilian disco and a taste of Kuduro. But there's also modern Swedish psyche rock guitar virtuosity, Californian ambience, Congolese ritual, Catalonian post-dubstep, and heartbreaking country & Western balladry with just a hint of West Africa to it, among much, much more. Dive in, we dare you. Tracklist below.
