Lopa Kothari with new tracks from across the globe, and a studio session with new London-based band Family Atlantica.

Now he is releasing albums of the label's own artists. At the core of Family Atlantica are multi-instrumentalist Jack Yglesias, Venezuelan singer Luzmira Zerpa, and West African percussionist Kwame 'Natural Power' Crentsil. Their debut album is just out, recorded over four years in London and Venezuela.
