We continue to plunder the recordings from our Lateness stage at TUSK Virtual, an annual festival in the north east that focuses on left-of-centre music. In partnership with Radio 3’s programme Freeness, we handpicked three exciting acts from the region: Anglo-American folk duo Cath and Phil Tyler; composer and turntablist Mariam Rezaei and electronic artist Stephen Bishop; and new jazz quartet Caröm.
Expect more off cuts from their live performances plus unique collaborations which mix and match members from each ensemble: think turntables colliding with traditional vocals; improvised double bass with folk guitar. Elsewhere we have Kate Carr and Sheryl Cheung’s music made from bicycles; Los Angeles-based musician Ana Roxanne’s ambient explorations of her intersex identity; and reflections on Malian society in a brand new release from singer Nahawa Doumbia. Produced by Katie Callin and Alannah Chance. A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
