Global Echoes - A Griot in Cropredy
A North Oxfordshire special where Marcos samples the delights of the Kora with a Senagalese Griot in the backroom of the Brasenose arms in Cropredy. Charlotte Pattullo goes to the Mill in Banbury to find out why the Urban Folk Quartet love fusing the traditional musics of Spain and England. Marcos also meets Peter Borshic, the pioneer of African Linx, which encourages collaborations between North Oxfordshire and the Gambia. Plus music from the Dhoad Gypsies of Rajasthan, Afro Latino with the stars of Mali, flamenco from Seville, the Maori singer Mina Ripa and the exotic sounds of the Calcutta slide guitar.
