In this week's Sound Kitchen, Bengali New Year's greetings, quiz winners and RFI Traveller Alexandra Waldhorn who gives us a taste of music from Latin America.


Welcome to The Sound Kitchen. You can catch the programme on-the-air every Saturday, at our new times: 6:10, 14:45 and 16:45 universal time. You’ll hear the winner’s names announced and the week’s quiz question, along with all the other ingredients you have grown accustomed to: your letters and essays, On This Day, quirky facts and news, interviews, and great music … so be sure and tune in every Saturday. 

This week’s quiz answer: On 21st March, and the date was very key to the question, Susan asked a question about the sun’s activity at that precise time of year. She asked what is an equinox?

The answer is… At the equinox, the Earth’s two hemispheres receive the sun’s rays equally. Night and day are approximately the same length. The word 'equinox' comes from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night). Many of our quiz respondents got it right, so shame we can’t give prizes to everyone. Some answers from the previous question arrived too late! So make sure you send in your answers before the cut-off date each week!

The winners this week are:
Sanjai Aravindhan from Chennai in India
Priyanka Paul from the Metali Listener’s Club in India
Raju Rasheduzzaman from Bangladesh
Onamika Khanam from Bangladesh
Raihan Ali from Bangladesh

Congratulations, winners!
