8:25 Music Feature: The Secret Life of Synaesthetes
For some people, music is more than an auditory experience – bass notes are purple, strings in unison have a muscle-like texture, and manuka honey evokes b-flat major 7. Emma Smith meets a handful of artists with synaesthesia and talks to leading synaesthesia experts about what these extra sensory traits could mean for all of us.

11:06 WOMAD Taranaki 2015
In this programme we feature an interview with and live performance from 12-piece brass band, Fanfare Ciocarlia - all hailing from the same small village in North eastern Romania. Celebrated globally for their eclectic repertoire of Gypsy infused Balkan brass traditions delivered at breakneck speed, Fanfare Ciocarlia defy all preconceptions of brass band music. We also feature a performance from petite Brazilian chanteuse, Flavia Coelho. Accompanied by her very slick band, Flavia presented a repertoire that was a fusion of Samba, bossa nova and hip hop.
