Lately I've been listening to and reading the poetry of Chile's Gabriela Mistral and Pablo Neruda. I've featured both before but, strangely, never together. So here they are, mixed with birdsong, melody and rhythms from South America, musicians working with organic sounds and folk traditions in electronic spheres: Nicola Cruz, Nillo + Sentidor, Dany F, Barrio Lindo, Lulacruza. Includes Tremor's track from the album 'A Guide to the Birdsong of South America' - to support the birds, click here: https://rhythmandroots.bandcamp.com/album/a-guide-to-the-birdsong-of-south-america

This mix is stitched together from a two-hour live set for Triple R, 102.7FM radio in Melbourne, on 17th July. Filling in for Jonathan Alley's "Under the Sun" radio show (Sundays 6-8pm http://www.rrr.org.au/program/under-the-sun/)
