On April 2, we launch TUSK TV featuring all the diverse international musical brilliance you’d expect from us in one potent monthly microdose. This first show is just over 4 hours long and totally free to view, repeated on a 12hour delay again to maximize overseas view-ability and then added to our online archive.

Featuring in Episode 1, presented by writer/presenter Jennifer Lucy Allan (BBC Radio3 etc) will be free jazz hero William Parker, US rapper Nappy Nina, Italian percussionist Valentina Magaletti and Norwegian skronk supergroup SPUNK.

The show will also feature William Parker in conversation with Stewart Smith, Maja and Kristin from SPUNK in conversation with Joe Murray; and Mariam Rezaei talking about Veil, her first duo album with Opal Tapes‘ Stephen Bishop.

A regular feature of TUSK TV will be Giant Tank’s Pot Luck, where Ali and Collette Robertson of the Edinburgh label lure two musicians/noisemakers into a ‘blind collaboration’ – this month they bring together Greg Kelley (in Boston, Mass) and Joyce Whitchurch (in Newcastle).

And we are also delighted to present the film Marshlands by Canadian artist and sound-maker Chik White, plus an exclusive video mix by the great Hive Mind label.

All free to view via this site from 8pm UK on Friday 2 April.
