PMB091 Mexican Moon Dance: Keith Mansfield, Percy Faith, Perry London, Esquivel…

We play a lot of Mexican music on the show but we've been thinking for a while that it was about time we tried to sort out the fake (mainly German) Mexicans from the real thing. So on this week's show you'll hear music which is equal parts sauerkraut and sombrero with tunes from Keith Mansfield, Percy Faith, Esquivel, Pepe Jaramillo, Jean-Jacques Perrey, The Mexicali Brass, Conlon Nancarrow and Florence Foster Jenkins amongst others. Each edition of Project Moonbase is available for download around 8pm BST (UTC+1) every Sunday evening.
