In a recently post, Martin Doyle, Tanzania And The Music Tree, we highlighted Martin Doyle’s upcoming trip to Tanzania in August with British composer and sound designer Nina Perry. Two excerpts from that post:
Martin Doyle is to feature in a radio programme to be called The Music TreeNewstalk.

Nina Perry has very kindly offered this update on the trip:
