Lopa Kothari presents new CDs from around the world, and a studio session with Colombian diva Toto la Momposina. She brings along her family band - three generations of singers and percussionists - for music which reflects Colombia's traditonal 'cumbia', a mix of influences from indigenous Indians, West Africans, Chinese and Europeans.
