Great, makes a lot of sense given how for listening and joining the dots in a common space in terms of voice, rhythm and above all universal vibrations: music as life and inner wisdom, none finer around now coming through than saxist Arun Luthra, in the Trilok Gurtu bracket aura wise regardless of instrument chosen for sure.

The high profile Arena strand Biyi Bandele-directed documentary Fela Kuti: Father of Afrobeat is on BBC 2 tonight at 9.30pm.
