20170324 Songhoy Blues

Kate Hutchinson with Songhoy Blues // 24-03-17

A monthly show from Kate Hutchinson, Guardian music and culture journalist, broadcaster and DJ from London. She is also the former Clubbing Editor at Time Out and is still waiting impatiently for the fidget-house revival.

For her second show, Kate welcomes Malian desert-punks Songhoy Blues into the studio for a special live session. She’ll be chatting to the band and joining the dots between Nordic cosmic disco, Ghanaian highlife and R&B from the future.
