folk // experimental // world // traditional // fieldrecording
Tune in to New Routes to hear sound waves from before and after the electrification of music, that have rattled and hummed from instruments long ago put down, through the fresh air of lands distant and close, out of vintage field recorders and phonographs before arriving here, in a space where the idea of authenticity still holds water (but how much?) and tradition is not the enemy of experiment. This is a place where the past is not forgotten, and the future never ignored; the only rule is that the music comes from the people (any people) and that it remembers the people who came before.

15/11/2017 // Bachata (One for Egon)
New Routes has its very first guest, Patrick McCafferty, who will be teaching us all about Bachata. We'll also be taking in a London Conversation, some Japanese advert music and paying homage to the great painter Egon Schiele.
