A Quarantini with the Dhaqan Collective - Camel Meat and Cassette Tapes

We kick off season 5 with an interview with three women from the Dhaqan Collective. Fozia Ismail, Asmaa Jama and Ayan Cilmi talk about their project Camel Meat and Cassette Tapes - an artistic soundscape about the tradition of the UK Somali community sending cassette tapes back and forth with recordings of their lives. Camel meat was chewed while they listened to news of their families to get them in the mood!

ALSO - we've chosen a truly beautiful music track from Algerian singer Siem Folknomade.

PLUS - we bring you our usual round up of positive responses to the virus from around the world....
