Radaid and Novalima, remixing Latin American traditions

By Daniel Brown

World Tracks this week goes to Portugal and central Paris to talk to artists from Mexico and Peru about their innovative mixture of electronic and folk music.

Radaid and Novalima are forging new sounds that are attracting younger audiences. They thus hope to resurrect musical traditions that have been buried for far too long in Latin America.
