CWCLDN holds an exclusive chat with the 'Samurai Guitarist', Miyavi in this episode.

On this show he plays his intricate interpretations of Eduardo Martin compositions, recorded for The Havana Suite album. See these two Cuban virtuosos together, live, in concert at Bolivar Hall on May 14th!

We kick off our second week dedicated to Punkt Festival in Kristiansand, Norway by chatting to Jan Bang, one of the festival's founders. An influential figure in live remixing, he talks about the festival's genesis and plans for the future. Also, Harvey talks to Ben Frost, a rather prolific noise musician living in Iceland. Other festival performers getting a play include Owen Pallett, Marconi Union and the Weekend Guitar Trio. A thermal bass layer as the northern winds take hold.
