Album of the week: El Existential from Grupo Fantasma on the National Geographic Label

Welcome to this week’s round the world music adventure and we start off with two tracks from Ghana, something old and something new, one for each goal that put them through to the quarter finals of the World Cup. With England’s disappointing result we’re now backing Ghana. We have a couple of references to Colombian sound systems, new releases from Cheikh Lo, Carlou D, Luisa Maita, Lepisto and Lehti and our album of the week from the mighty Texan ten peice is also out this month.
