Playing: African suite for harp and strings (1944) by Fęlá Şowándé

North Korea

Sit back and enjoy the first ever radio programme recorded in this isolated and extraordinary country. Andy has described this as the "last great adventure on planet Earth". Even with all the restrictions and supervision, Radio 3 managed to record the music of local musicians.

Other highlights include sea shanties from the East coast, a visit to the statue of the great leader and a very brief excursion into South Korea.
