World Music Central and GondwanaSound have entered into an intercontinental collaboration. We will be exchanging news and articles. GondwanaSound is the radio show on Sheffield Live! 93.2FM produced by Jill Turner, who many will recognize as one of World Music Central’s collaborators and a contributor to the excellent Songlines world music magazine.
Since many of GondwanaSound’s listeners are on vacation, Jill and her team have decided to broadcast a summer special to be repeated over the August weeks, a Tropicalia retro afrique mix of some of their favorite tunes.
New items on the GondwanaSound website include:
- A review of Calypso Rose’s set at WOMAD this year with images from Paul Tomlins, gondwanasound.co.uk/node/1198.
- DJ Debbie Golt was beaming heartily after the Jolly Boys gig at 100 club, gondwanasound.co.uk/node/1196
Jill’s article on the Musiport festival was subbed down and published in Songlines magazine this month. You can read the full article on the GondwanaSound website with links to the Songlines version. gondwanasound.co.uk/node/1190
GondwanaSound will be giving away two pairs of tickets to Musicport in a September competition, stay tuned to the radio show and web site for details.

GondwanaSound has also linked up with the internet radio station Groovalisation who will be repeating our Sheffield Live broadcasts and have a strong base in Latin America.
