Psychedelia2016052120160522 (WS)"A celebration of psychedelia, the music genre born in the purple haze of the late 60s

Global Beats showcases some of the best and most inventive up and coming musicians from around the world.

We celebrate psychedelia, the music genre born in the purple haze of the late 60s, and characterised by albums like The Beatles' Sgt Pepper, bands like Pink Floyd and songs like Cloud 9 by the Temptations. It swept the world from Nigeria to Cambodia and has never really gone far away as a musical flavour that artists such as Prince or DeLa Soul have loved to revel in.

We hear from the current wave of psychedelic artists from right across the planet, including Graveola from Belo Horizonte in Brazil and The Dwarfs of East Agouza from Cairo in Egypt. Presenter Max Reinhardt finds out why psychedelia seems to be forever in a state of frenzied reincarnation.
