Music for Timbila

In two special programmes Lucy Duran travels to the rarely visited Southern African country of Mozambique.

After decades of civil war, it's home to many diverse musical traditions which have rarely been recorded or heard by outsiders.

She visits the beautiful Ilha do Mocambique to hear traditional Tufo songs of the women. Plus there's panpipe music from the very hot north, and in Maputo, the first gig in four years by the country's best-loved veteran band Ghorwane.
