Roots World

Roots World 208

Old and fresh Brazilian sounds from Scandinavia

We’ll start off the 208th edition of RootsWorld with some Brazilian sounds, both old and new. New tracks come from Luísa Maita, and Meta Meta, mixed with some classic sounds from Caetano Veloso, Antonio Nobrega and Hermeto Pascoal. We’ll hear Londan based trio Elda do an unusual crossover from Brazil, through Slovenia into Sweden. We’ll move on to a trio of women from Norway, Denmark and Sweden called Fru Skagerakk, hear a French dance set by The Rheingans Sisters from England, and a renewed old time American song by Last Forever. We’ll go out with some jazz by oud player-composer Issa Murad and his ensemble.
