It’s an emotional start to this week’s podcast with the final recording of podcast mainstays Tomaga. It is – as with all the music Tom and Valentina made together – absolutely stunning and it’s heartbreaking no more is forthcoming.
More positively, we have a great batch of other sounds to accompany it, not least the ferocious Bugandan drumming of the Nilotika Drum Ensemble or the more experimental percussion of Poland’s Arszyn. There’s gnarly noise from USA/Mexico, library influenced delights from Tom Furse, “Black Dwarf” techno from Selm, and loads more.
