Corey Mwamba presents live music from the Konfrontationen festival. For the last 40 years the small town of Nickelsdorf on the Austrian/Hungarian border becomes a hub for the best new free and improvised music across central Europe. Tonight Corey features highlights from a freely improvised set by US drummer Hamid Drake and Swiss pianist Irène Schweizer, and the hip-hop meets improv post-apocalyptic powerhouse Anguish featuring Will Brooks, Mats Gustafsson, Hans Joachim Irmler, Mike Mare and Andreas Werliin.

Also in the show: music from pianist/composer Satoko Fujii and drummer Taysuya Yoshida's new album Baikamo that’s full of playful energy; and psychedelic otherworldly sounds from Leverton Fox.
