After a too short week in Slovenia, I’m back home just in time to prep the next Around the World. Many of the tunes I’ll be playing have been sitting on the “must play sometime soon” list. With a collection of excellent but almost overlooked music, it promises to be a very entertaining show.

Listen to last week’s show and see the running order on and find out more about the music. You can also listen to Part 1 here and Part 2 – all music from Slovenia – on Mixcloud.

Hear the show on the web on Sundays at 10:00 pm to midnight:  
Slice AudioFerry FM,  Radio Larne and Armagh City Radio .

And on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm on the radio and web

Featured Album: Bastien Picot from Reunion Island is known as Aurus. He is touring with his album “Chimera” around mainland France. I came across this interview with him on the English language service of France 24.

The album was released in September. I missed it then, but am very glad to have found it now. If you don’t want to bother with the interview, you might be interested in the music.

A new live version of Hauspoaren infernutik by Xabi Aburruzaga from his new album Aurrez Aurre. This is an older version from WOMEX 20


Arooj Aftab has won her first Grammy. “The Pakistani composer took the prize ahead of Femi Kuti, Wizkid, Tems, Angélique Kidjo, Burna Boy, and Yo-Yo Ma.” Pitchfork

I’ll be playing a track “Udhero Na” which features Anoushka Shankar from Vulture Prince. This video of a performance of Diya Hai with Badi Assad was released a few weeks in advance of the album.

There’s this new piece from Bajofondo & YSY “A Sonido Nativo del Río”.

Also: Aldina Duarte, Anandi Bhattacharya, Aterciopelados & Bomba Estéreo, Combo Chimbita, Ibibio Sound Machine, Imarhan, islandman & Alek Lee, Nava Parafonè, Rokia Koné & Jacknife Lee, and Youssou N’Dour

There’ll be a whole lot more.


But how does this fit in?
