Saharan Banga and Anglo-French folk
Maximalist journeys from Spain and ‘huge volume’ from the Saharan desert, with Verity Sharp.
Bigging up the start of the week with enormous sounds from across the planet.
Verity Sharp shares new music from Ifriqiyya Electrique, blending sounds from the ancient Saharan Banga (literally ‘huge volume’) ritual with the duo’s post-punk background. Spanish producer Rrucculla’s album ‘Shush’ is anything but quiet - a maximalist journey influenced by free jazz, math-rock and Latin music among other things.
Plus, Anglo-French folk from Topette, and Kate Molleson joins Verity in the studio to offer a glimpse of what’s to come on ‘The New Music Show’ which starts on Radio 3 this weekend.
Produced by Chris Elcombe.
