A review of new world music albums, and a studio session with a Mali-Brazil collaboration featuring kora virtuoso Toumani Diabaté with songwriter Arnaldo Antunes and guitarist Edgard Scandurra. Presented by Lucy Duran.
Toumani Diabaté first collaborated with Arnaldo Antunes and Edgard Scandurra at the 2010 Back2Black Festival in Rio de Janeiro. He then invited them to Bamako to record an album, and they were in the UK in early July for London's own Back2Black Festival. The album 'A Curva Da Cintura' was released in June, and both the album and this World Routes session also features the playing of Toumani's son, Sidiki.
