On the April edition of WorldBeatUK, there’s a mini-focus on the country of Turkey, a bit of a journey around the Middle East and the Eastern Mediterranean, old school cumbia and chicha, new-school tango, a slew of new Americana releases, two Finnish women go in search of a disco somewhere near the Arctic Circle and a whole heap of experimental cross-cultural fusions that are really very interesting indeed!
