Bellowhead (pictured above) is probably the most exciting and imaginative band working in English folk music today, bringing the dynamics of a jazz big band and the theatricality of the music hall to traditional songs. You'll hear a song from their new album Hedonism on this week's program, and you'll hear from a few like-minded British artists as well.
Other things to look forward to: some surprising Latin-style covers of Anglo pop and rock hits, an Argentine singer-songwriter's riff on Congotronics, a band from Marseille plays samba, a steel drum band takes on Fela Kuti, and more unexpected pleasures.
