The latest global radio show including Brazilian electronica, Vietnamese Jazz and Ethiopian nostalgia

Orchestre Baobab: Senegal's finest

Peter Culshaw’s nomadic monthly round-up of the latest brilliant intercontinental sounds includes Frippertronics from São Paulo, Indian classical electronica, Vietnamese jazz and Ethiopian nostalgia. It features great new releases from King Ayisoba, Blue Beast, Orchestra Baobab and some terrific compilations, notably from the late, great Nashville master songwriter Guy Clark.

The show was recorded at the enterprising MusicBoxRadio UK’s spanking new studio in Farringdon, London. Since being posted on Mixcloud the show has already gone to number two in Mixcloud's Latin chart and Afrobeat chart, third on the World Music chart and sixth in the Eclectic chart.
