Lopa Kothari with Anatolian psych band Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek in session, Amanda Kauranne takes us on a road trip to Finland and a Peruvian flavoured mixtape from chef and restaurateur Martin Morales.

Featuring the hypnotizing Saz and vocals of Derya Yıldırım, Grup Şimşek present a fresh take on Anatolian Folk mixing hints of Psychedelia, Jazz and Funk to create a modern yet retro and highly danceable take on Turkish music.

Musician and broadcaster Amanda Kauranne takes us on a road trip to Finland, looking at the diverse roots of Finnish music from Karelia and its influence on contemporary ideas of Finnish folk music.

Martin Morales, founder of the highly regarded Ceviche and Andina restaurants and Tiger's Milk Records, gives us a Peruvian flavoured mixtape to whet our appetites.

Our classic artist this week are Canadian Québécois legends La Bottine Souriante.
