Nick Luscombe presents Chino Amobi's Airport Music for Black Folk and Psychic Temple's take on Brian Eno's Music for Airports, plus Brazilian experimentalism, Cameroonian funk.

A round-the-world ticket for those who like to musically travel, piloted by presenter Nick Luscombe.

Starting with Chino Amobi's nu-ambient masterstroke 'Airport Music For Black Folk', and stopping briefly at Psychic Temple's take on Brian Eno's 'Music For Airports', this sonic journey will take in Brazilian experimentalism, Cameroonian funk, Canadian sax, German electronica, Russian jazz, and Vietnamese pop.

Plus tonight we pay tribute to two musical giants who have recently passed: composer and jazz pianist Geri Allen, and musique concrète pioneer Pierre Henry.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
