Guava Beats: upbeat and remixed sounds from around the world.  We explore the most bailable cocktail of music and culture from all corners of the globe: Cumbia, Reggae dub, Balkan, Afro beat, Baile funk, Calypso, Electroswing and Bollywood to name but a few! 

Originally from London, Joëlle pioneered Guava Beats in 2010 and now gets the chance to broadcast it on the Scanner FM airwaves in Barcelona! In our FIRST EVER show for Scanner FM, we play the latest sounds from the edgy Karol Conka in Brazil, Ethiopian funk remixes by Uproot Andy. We backtrack to the 80’s to take a listen to Somalia’s  ‘Dur Dur Band’.  Not to forget our Guava Go-Go that accompanies you on a virtual journey to Eritrea where we discover the roots of their music and check out the underground scene!
