On the programme this week Charlie brings you music from Cape Verde, Turkey, Paraguay, and Spain.

Firstly we hear from Lura, a singer of Cape-Verdian descent born in Portugal. She combines contemporary influences with traditional Cape-Verdian music on her song Tabanka. Barcelona-based group Ojos de Brujo describe their sound as “jipjop flamenkillo" or hip hop with a little flamenco. We play a track from their latest album Aocaná.

To Paraguay next for a song from Quintana-Escalante, a local group recommended to Charlie by a listener of the show. Following that is the upbeat sound of Balkan gypsy-maestro Goran Bregovic with Hop Hop Hop from his Best of album.

Charlie revisits some of the Turkish music he explored in his recent programmes from Istanbul. Ehmedo is sung by the Kurdish singer Aynur. And the second track is a collaboration between singer Sevval Sam and British group Up, Bustle & Out. Finally we end on a track from US musician Mooondog taken from his album More Moondog.
