LIFEM on Songlines Magazine Podcast

“The London International Festival of Exploratory Music spans four venues from October 29th to November 7th, offering the most adventurous of musical spirits an epic trek around the four corners of the world. This year’s festival is arrayed between the shiny new Kings Place, eclectic arts centre Rich Mix, and the uber trendy Cafe Oto, in north London, and Wandsworth’s Lost Theatre. The festival features new Portuguese fado from Claudia Aurora, Vietnamese Cai Luong – theatre music song – from Huong Thanh, Poland’s Warsaw Village Band, and Siberia’s Namgar. This only scratches the surface of the list of artists, spanning from China to Angola, Estonia to Brazil. And here is a world exclusive preview of ‘Primavera’ from Claudia Aurora debut’s album, ‘Silencio’.” (Songlines Magazine Podcast 79, released on 02 September 2011, including highlights from the October 2011 issue of Songlines magazine)
