Crazy crazy week with lots going on, I went down to the awards for world music, arranged an interview with Bassekou Kouyate, met with the Maasai warriors running the marathon and got back to Sheffield in time for the European Premier of Slingshot Hip Hop which followed the Weird Folk of America, the documentary about Harry Smith ( all part of the Sensoria Film and Music festival in Sheffield.)

No wonder by battery needs recharging........

Hope you enjoy this week's broadcast with an interview from Sa Ding Ding and soundbites from the awards for world music, an edited interview with Bassekou Kouyate ( the full interview is online check the GondwanaSound archives) there's an interview with Fanfare Ciocarlia ( translated by Henry Ernst)

Plus we give away a copy of the Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith, ( Smithsonian Folkways) courtesy of Egea Alternative Music Distribution.
