Monsieur Doumani         Hey You               Angathin

Formed in 2011 in Nicosia Cyprus. Their third album with the symbolic name ‘Angathin’ (2018) – which translates as ‘thorn’ – addresses more than ever, the political, social and activist concerns and sensitivities of the group members and it is a call for rebellion against corruption, racism and injustice.

Taina Asili           Decir Que No     Resiliencia

Taina Asili @tainaasili


Saulo Duarte      Se Esqueça Não                Avante Delírio

Born: Belém, State of Pará, Brazil

Born in Belém and raised in Fortaleza, Saulo Duarte’s guitar playing is rooted in the Country-style picking of ‘guitarrada’ music from the north of Brazil, a sound perhaps best exemplified in the recordings of Vieira e Seu Conjunto, whose 1980s classic ‘Lambada Do Rei’ Sterns first released in 1988.

But Saulo is now living in São Paulo, the nation’s commercial hub, and with his more international sound, has become one of Brazil’s most in-demand musicians.

Oum      Daba      Daba

“Thought in Casablanca, conceived in Paris and recorded in Berlin,  Daba  Oum’s new album transpires the experience of a woman artist of the world.“



Balkan Alien Sound Orchestra – EP           Balkaseltzer       Basork


Robert Peoples – Violin
Martin Coyle – Bouzouki
Aideen McGinn – Vocal
Marc Forbes – Bass
Conor McAuley – Drums

The last ten years has seen them produce, promote and preserve the World Music scene in Northern Ireland, introducing live audiences to new music and cultures in addition to working within communities through interactive music performances and workshops. The group work hand in hand with organisations such as LUXe Processional Spectacle Theatre, WOMAD N.I. and Beyond Skin N.I.




Flor de Toloache              Besos de Mezcal              Indestructible

This week get a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album.


Jordan Adetunji                               Questions           Questions – Single

From his breakout performance on Stendhal 2019’s main stage to two nominations and another stellar performance at this year’s NI Music Prize, he’s went from a cult favourite act to a household name amongst the NI Music community. His most recent release, ‘Questions’, sees the rapper take from his long list of influences and delicately put his own spin on them.


With aspects of afrobeat, funk, rap and jazz playing major roles in this song, it’s another strong release for the NI artist.


Rachid Taha                        Ansit                     Je suis africain


Recorded before his death in 2018, the 16th and final solo album of Rachid Taha cannot escape the shadow of his loss. Born in Algeria, raised in France, but a citizen of rock’n’roll, Taha pogoed over boundaries, torching genres as he went. It’s fitting that the last album from a key player in Damon Albarn’s early Africa Express lineups should incorporate pan-African zeal.

At the beginning Iļģi was an ensemble of authentic Latvian folk music. They visited remote parts of Latvia in search for unrecorded folk songs, studied the traditional performance, as well as sewing their own traditional costumes and building their own instruments.
