Laibach We Will Go to Mount Paektu Party Songs – EP
A pop music song from North Korea which Slovenian Avant-garde band were due to in the country when they became the first western rock musicians to play there. “We Will Go to Mount Paektu” is in praise of the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un. But the censors said “No” because the song had been altered – Maybe I’ll compare and contrast in a later programme – sounds like Christmas special stuff
The other main part of their performance was playing The Sound of Music which they went on to release as an album last year.

Aziza Brahim Mujayam Sahari
Aziza Brahim grew up in a refugee camp in the Algerian desert, along with thousands of others who were removed from their homes in the Western Sahara. That experience is reflected on the cover of the album with a young girl in a ballet shoes and tutu. Behind her stand the tents and buildings of a refugee camp. There’s a desert on the ground and a burning blue sky above.
