Sons of Kemet tuba player Theon Cross whose latest album Intra-I was released last month and the singer-songwriter Poppy Ajudha are to benefit from new Music Export Growth Scheme (MEGS) funding it's been announced. The pair are among 20 indie artists to gain from the BPI (British Phonographic Industry) and UK government-backed scheme aimed at boosting artists abroad and worth grants of £300,000 in total. Minister for exports at the Department for International Trade (DIT) Mike Freer MP said: “Our music industry is one of the UK’s strongest cultural and economic assets. Every year countless songs are written in the UK and performed around the world. We want to continue to make the most of the global opportunity to grow British music and DIT is proud to co-fund MEGS with industry to support independent labels and artists.” Theon Cross, above

Buika

María Concepción Balboa Buika fans, form a disorderly queue as 'Melancolía' here from Yellow Spaceship set for release by the Copenhagen label Music For Dreams is a mindblower from the great flamenco and copla singer. We have been dipping into five tracks from guitarist Jacob Gurevitsch's upcoming release set for early-2022 and got lucky. Danish singer Alice Carreiri also features on the release which melds flamenco, bolero, vintage jazz and more. Buika, above, is, let's just level, so moving on the track among the strings, guitar and accordion setting, and sensational. Jacob Gurevitsch, top. Photo: press
