HEAR THE WORLD "Music from the old guard by the Congolese band 4 Etoiles playing at the 2010 Hertme Afrika Festival. We’ll be hearing more from this concert later in the programme.
This is Hear the World, Radio Netherlands music programme bringing you live highlights from Dutch world music venues. I’m Dheera Sujan.
Today we begin with a Belgian DJ with Turkish roots, Merdan Taplak. Together with an accordionist and four brass players, he forms the Merdan Taplak Orchestra, a party band with a range of Balkan beats, eastern rhythms and western electronic sounds, which get everybody dancing. Just listen to these two numbers Pass on the Whiskey and Bander Bounce."
