Lokkhi Terra Che Guava's Rickshaw Diaries

Hear a load of border-crossing collaborations for this New Sounds, including a danceable Bhangra tune (dance music from the Indian subcontinent) by a Budapest-based Balkan brass band. Then there’s Bangladeshi interpretation of Afro-Latin styles by LokKhi TeRa, a London-based collective who have taken in the streets of Bangladesh, the Afrobeat clubs of Nigeria, the cantinas of Cuba and the beaches of Brazil.  On their tune, "Shokhi Kunjo Shajoa,"Indian flute soars over Cuban Santéria-style chants, steady percussion and keyboard flourishes, before horns take it higher and sweet Bengali vocals take it higher still.

Also, listen to a merging of the Swiss jazz trio Podjama together with Moroccan trance musicians, Les Gnawa de Marrakech.  Plus, a collision (or collusion) of Indian musicians and English folk music which results in a world-beat epic song with a drum battle in the middle.
