Lopa Kothari with a mix of sounds from across the globe and a session by the Brazilian/American outfit Nation Beat who combine traditional maracatu drumming with funk, country and blues.

The American/Brazilian collective Nation Beat plays a 21st century mashup inspired by Brazilian maracatu drumming, New Orleans second line rhythms, funk and country-blues.
