Glyn Phillips is passionate about the music of the world! His two-hour weekly show, WorldBeatUK, brings you the latest releases and peeks at forthcoming albums from around the globe – the sounds of five continents, innumerable islands and a multitude of cultures – all presented with enthusiasm and a desire to share his knowledge and new discoveries!
WorldBeatUK takes you from the favelas of Brazil to the forests of Finland, from the heart of Africa to the very edges of Asia and from the shores of the Caribbean to the urban high-rises of Europe.
With record labels and artists from around the globe sending him new releases almost every day Glyn literally has the world at his fingertips and guarantees you’ll hear something every week that will whet your appetite and pique your curiosity!
On the February 2021 edition of WorldBeatUK, Glyn delivers another banquet for your ears! There’s music from the UK, Cuba, Finland, Mexico, Burma, Mauritania, Brazil, Cameroon, France, Mauritania, Portugal, the USA and Colombia as well as Polish music from Canada, and Turkish music from Holland!
Included within all this Glyn investigates a fabulous 100 track release of very rare and old global music recorded on 78 rpm vinyl shellac, checks out music about migrants, dances around to the topical story of a woman dumped via Zoom(!) and talks about a little known elusive community hidden away in a mountain range in South America who are direct descendants of the Tairona civilisation that existed before the Spanish invasion.
Take a chance on something new!
