An almost irrelevantly belated International Women's Day show, but who needs an excuse to celebrate ~INTERNATIONAL BABES~? Not Tigerbeat. East, West, modern and old, a celebration of talented and wonderful women around the world. Less regional structure but still plenty of crackin' stuff like Japanese hip hop and Beninoise 90s house.

Novos Baianos : Tinindo Trincado rec'd by Subcity's Gerry Blythe of canções do sol
İstanbul Çalgıcıları : Köroğlu Dağları rec'd by the inimitable Dave Barbarossa
Julia Holter : Moto Perpetua rec'd by Tigerbeat (and also generally) artist Silja Strom
Amadou & Mariam : Sabali rec'd by my pal Ross who works in a pub in Yoker
Halcali - Giri Giri Surf Rider rec'd by James Brown (the).
(ignore the completely botched first minute, it's character building)
