Episode 58 – The Home Spun Sessions: Wara

Wara bring their fab take on Cuban music to the Home Spun Show. Salsa meets Reggae, Afro-Jazz meets Rap in the underground sounds of London’s new pan-world immigrant communities.

  • How the CIA exported Abstract Expressionism around the world during the 60’s to promote ‘freedom’ & the American Way.
  • How the Jamaicans took foghorns from American warships and turned them into bass speakers, inventing sound system culture.
  • Tom Collis extols the virtues of the VW Combi ‘bread loaf ‘camper van. So long as the damned thing doesn’t over-cook and catch fire!
  • It’s Banjo bashing time with Robert Crumb & the Cheap Suit Serenaders.
  • We say No, No, No to Yes.
