For the first time this year BBC Radio 3’s adventurous music programme Late Junction will be curating the Friday evening on our Tipi stage. With a rich history in broadcasting left field music, from Russian sound art to Chicago footwork via field recordings and free jazz, Late Junction has selected 4 suitably boundary- pushing artists to top their bill.
Renowned multi instrumentalist and new age mystic Laraaji, once discovered by Brian Eno while busking in Washington Square, brings his unique blend of transcendental jazz and new age ambience to the Tipi stage.
Klein, a singer and producer based in South London (by way of Lagos) known for her unique blend of gospel, experimental electronic production and raw vocals.
Tuareg vocalist and guitarist Mdou Moctar. Revered as an innovator in his home country of Niger, Moctar is known for his psychedelic, electronic adaptations of traditional Tuareg music.
And Xylouris White, a duo comprised of the otherworldly singer & Cretian lute player George Xylouris alongside the battering force of Dirty Three drummer, Jim White.
Late Junction will also be at large across the festival site on Friday. Laraaji will also be hosting a laughter meditation workshop on the lawn in front of The New Pavilion at 2pm and presenter Nick Luscombe will DJ on The Disco Ship from 12.30–1.30am.
Recordings of all performances will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction on the 12th to the 14th September from 11pm. Late Junction is on air at 11pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday on BBC Radio 3.
