[Repeated from Sunday 9pm.] Rhythmically other, entertaining, perplexing and unashamedly progressive sounds, playing music that uses unusual time signatures, song structures and dynamics - sounds that break out of Western music's obsession with 4/4.

Clear Spot

The Sound of Home: a documentary by photographer and writer Kay Goodridge and Nick Skelton, producer of Clubglobal world music programme. Join them on a musical journey through the eyes of several families from Syria and Iraq who have been resettled in the UK - all forced to leave their countries as a result of war. What does home mean to them? Is it a place, a memory, a state of mind, or a sound? Can a sound or a piece of music take us home? As they speak openly from the heart, a shared generosity of spirit emerges - and guides the listener through the soundtrack of their lives. Funded by Awards for All. [Repeated Tuesday 10am.]
