His album of the month is Rapadou Kreyol by the Haitian American artist, Wesli, but there’s also music from Mulatu Astatke and Black Jesus Experience (Ethiopia & Australia), Capt Planet & Shungudzo (Zimbabwean American), Naima Shalhoub (Lebanese American), Waaju (UK, ft Will Heard), Etienne de la Sayette (Paris), Trans Kalahari Quintet (Botswana), Piirainen Blom Co. (Finland), Saulius Petreikis (Lithuania) and Scroggins & Rose (USA).
There’s tango vibes from Argentina’s Maria Cangiano and Italy’s Carolina Bubbico and English folk from Ninebarrow and Pennine Way. Finally Glyn checks out the Barcelonan YouTube ‘lockdown’ sensations Stay Homas – and makes a special dedication to a dear friend.
WorldBeatUK will be back on Monday 6th July on Brum Radio at 8pm
