Tuesday - Latitude and Womad Festivals 2015

Nick Luscombe presents a varied selection of music, including highlights from the 2015 Womad festival.

Nick Luscombe with a set from singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop, recorded at the Late Junction Lavish Lounge stage at this year's Latitude Festival in Suffolk. Plus highlights from Womad 2015, electronica from Peru and organ music by the Uri Caine Ensemble.

BBC Radio 3's eclectic late night music programme Late Junction returns to the Latitude Festival for the fifth time to curate a stage in the festival's 10th edition at Henham Park, bringing eight captivating contemporary acts to the Lavish Lounge stage in a new location in the woods. With a wide cross-section of contemporary artists, influences range from 1970s horror films, ping pong balls and the Mojave Desert, to contemporary Nordic jazz, traditional West African musical storytelling and groove-based psychedelic rock.

The hand-picked line-up will bring a wide range of diverse and cross-genre artists spanning jazz, contemporary and folk music to Latitude and Radio 3 listeners, including the intriguing sounds of multi-instrumentalist Marcus Hamblett, experimental quintet Polar Bear, the beautiful tones of Jesca Hoop and the Japanese performance artist, instrument builder and musician ICHI who creates sounds from every-day objects including tape loops and ping pong balls.

The stage is hosted by Radio 3 presenters Max Reinhardt and Nick Luscombe. Highlights recorded at the event on 17th, 18th and 19th July will be featured in Late Junction throughout this and last week.
