Every now and then, Weltbeat host and selector Jean Trouillet decides to shake things up a bit and air a Globalwize special, by picking a certain theme for his two-hour broadcast. After his "Dubwize Special" with German author, journalist, sound engineer, producer and keynote speaker Helmut Philipps back in December 2022 for show #414 and his "Mali Special" a few weeks ago for show #418, he recently recorded another special, strutting the Rastafarian colours of green, yellow and red. His "Globalwize Radioshow #420" is a special show emphasizing women in reggae, recorded alongside studio guest Jacek Szafir aka Jack Sapphire (of Reggae Against Politricks fame).
