UK-based Zohar describe their music as "a middle-eastern voyage into sound" and combine sampled Jewish and Arabic voices with their own contemporary and ambient beats.
Conjunto Sabroso is one of the most original Latin bands to have emerged in the UKtoday. Featuring the sound of the Cuban tres this lively ten-piece band brings together musicians from all over Latin America, led by charismatic
Colombian singer Luz Elena. Supergroup Alaap - the "Godfathers of Bhangra" - were founded in 1977. They have collaborated with the biggest Bollywood names in India and have had countless hits featuring their combination of virtuosic vocals, brilliant percussion and sheer personality. And the Bhundu Boys: a feel-good band who put the sound of Zimbabweanjitjive on the map. The Los Angeles Times recently described them as "simply a sensational group".
