Born out of a love for music and the urge to share it, the monthly EL SONIDO: show aims to join the dots between jazz, hip-hop and electronica. Every programme features a carefully curated, hour-long playlist showcasing the most creative and exciting new music from the UK, Europe and beyond.
Originally hailing from Leicestershire in the UK, Michael Leafe now writes from his adoptive home in Barcelona. A huge advocate of the burgeoning UK jazz scene, Michael’s tastes span right from Golden Age hip-hop to the ever-evolving sound of the electronic underground on both sides of the Atlantic.
