This week's show is now available via the BBC iPlayer. Please visit the link any time between now and the start of the next programme.

As part of the Cultural Olympiad, coinciding with London 2012, Bangor's 9bach and Australia's Black Arm Band have forged a cross cultural collaboration that celebrates the common ground of human experience between two communities as geographically polarised as it's possible to get.

The culmination of this, following 9bach's visit to Australia last year, was the Black Arm Band coming over to the UK to perform with 9bach in London and at Y Galeri in Caernarfon.

The collaboration "explores musical connections and the preservation of language and culture through music and song."

"Since working together we have discovered a massive connection between Welsh and Aboriginal people," they say, "from the love we have for families to the belly laughs and same sense of humour.

"The love for our languages, and the fight to preserve them or even retrieve them. Our cultures are strong and connected in many ways, and who we are, and where our families are from are so important!"

It is my honour - and pleasure - to be able to broadcast half an hour of the concert recorded in Caernarfon as a joint exercise between BBC Radio Wales and C2.

Lisa Gwilym's C2 show will also celebrate the concert this Friday night (3 August) - and will feature an exclusive interview with Lisa Jen from 9bach.

Elsewhere in the show, Alan Holmes reminds us of Krystalnacht. Lara Catrin gets dewy-eyed translating Y Blew and Ben Hayes explores The Liverpool Scene.

First time plays this week come for The Wild Eyes, F. O. E., Bodhi and Yoko Temple.

I play the best cover version in my memory (Sex Hands' version of Gorky's Zygotic Mynci's Mae Merched Yn Neud Gwallt Eu Gilydd) and there is peerless sonic creativity from a whole host of other Welsh artists.
