TONITE on your RADIO! It's the Begilufin WEAPONS show!
Your deadly hosts Ziv Lode and Dan Abbott unleash sixty minutes of music connected by the unlikely theme of WEAPONS. Tune in and stand well back while we let loose with an hour of life-threatening international tunes, songs about guns, bombs and other instruments of doom. Sounds from India, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Switzerland and yes even Montenegro, since you asked. Our selection may possibly cause mild pain, but will be otherwise perfectly safe. Trust us. Our featured shiny new record on our "island" spot this week is a the remarkable debut by Sweden's Langendorf United - heavily influenced by Ethiopian jazz, it's a wild and sprawling saxophonic trip to the moon... and back!

Begilufin is an hour long radio show broadcast live twice a month from the heart Berlin on the station Pi Radio. On Begilufin we play a wild, confusing mess of international sounds, stretching from the birth of recorded music to something we heard two days ago. We do our best to ignore the normal, accentuate the weird, and ignore borders, boundaries and time-zones. Each show revolves around a central theme and then we surprise each other (and you, dear listener) with our selections live on air.
Since you ask, ‘Begilufin’ is a Hebrew word meaning intoxicated, inebriated, drunk, sozzled or smashed - a perfect description of the delirious off-centre mix of crazed music we like to spin on the show or indeed the effect it might have on your ears.
Begilufin was created by Ziv Lode in 2010. Ziv was joined by Dan Abbott a couples of years later after a chance meeting in a kindergarten playground revealed a mutual love of the music of Erkin ‘The Turkish Hendrix’ Koray.
