Winston McAnuff & Fixi: Big Brothers

By Alison Hird

Jamaican reggae artist Winston MacAnuff and French accordeonist and pianist Fixi seem worlds apart. But with their third joint album, Big Brothers, they prove once again that there's strength and excitement in difference. The charismatic duo talk to RFI about working class instruments, Calais migrants and doing the cha cha cha on top of a van through the streets of Kingston.
