Welcome to the fourth Flight Paths. On this episode, I’m heading off to The Land Down Under for the first half with some mind blowing tracks from Australia including a special song introduced by Matt Wells, the co-Director of the hugely popular theatre company Rhum & Clay.

Then for the second half, I’m off to the musical engine room of West Africa, Nigeria to hear some powerhouse songs from them including a song personally chosen by my second guest, the inspirational Nigerian born poet and playwright Inua Ellams.

Also this week, as the Arts industry falls further into the coronavirus crisis, I do a shout out to a community of creative freelancers taking action - Freelancers Make Theatre Work (www.freelancersmaketheatrework.com).

And finally a special thanks also to Ben Ringham for putting the Flight Paths intro together..

Featuring Dead Can Dance, Fingers Mitchel Cullen, Emily Wurramara, Fela Kuti, Flavour, Tony Allen and more.

Aired: Sunday 21st June, 2020
