Late Junction at Latitude 2013

Max Reinhardt presents highlights from the Late Junction stage in the Lavish Lounge at the 2013 Latitude Festival.

On tonight's programme composer Anna Meredith brings her cello-encrusted live band to perform music of symphonic scale with dancefloor intensity, crossing all boundaries between concert hall and festival stage, acoustic and electronic composition. Multi-instrumentalist Nancy Elizabeth conjures up old English folk traditions alongside the soundworlds of Ennio Morricone and Arthur Lee, and brings it all together with her beautifully unadorned voice. Post-tropical polyphonic populists from Minas Gerais in Brazil, Graveola draw influence from kitsch pop radio and dusty classical vinyls to create a sound they call "carnival-cannibalism", mixing the canon of 20th-century Brazilian music with funk, Latin, baroque and blues.

Max also heads off around the site to meet festival-goers and performers from across the artforms that make the festival unique.

Late Junction, BBC Radio 3's late night celebration of musical curiosities from across time and space returns to Latitude for a third year running. Filling the woods with captivating sounds, previous line-ups have featured music as diverse as Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier, song collector and Mercury Prize nominee Sam Lee and the tape music of minimalist composer Steve Reich. For 2013, Late Junction presenter Max Reinhardt hosts another hand-picked collection of diverse, wild music in the intimate setting of The Lavish Lounge.
