BBC Music Introducing at Latitude with Kathryn Tickell
Kathryn Tickell with recordings made on the BBC Music Introducing stage at Latitude, plus a Road Trip from Sara Tavares in Portugal and a Mixtape from Jack Yglesias.
Kathryn Tickell introduces recordings from the BBC Music Introducing stage at Latitude including Congolese jazz outfit Kongo Dia Ntotila and instrumental folk duo Fran & Flora. Our Road Trip takes us to Festival Med in the South of Portugal where singer Sara Tavares was performing in June - her recommendations include some of the best in fado - from the historic recordings of Amalia Rodrigues to the contemporary sounds of Carminho - as well as local hip-hop artist Carlao who samples the funana bands of his parents' homeland of Cape Verde, an ancestry shared by Tavares herself. Our classic artist this week is the Zion Travelers, a lesser known but highly regarded American gospel quartet from California active in the 1940s and 50s. And in this week's Mixtape, Jack Yglesias of Family Atlantica and the Heliocentrics selects a Hugh Tracey field recording from Zimbabwe, a recent recording by Colombia's Nidia Gongora with her group Canalon de Timbiqui, and some vintage Cuban rumba from Grupo GuaguancÃ³ Matancero.
