Immigrant Song Contest - Day One

The first two bands vying to win Newsnight's Immigrant Song Contest are Font from Iran and DR Congo's Ya Freddy. Watch now as they tell us how they came to be in the UK, give us a taster of their music and each perform a Eurovision cover from yesteryear.

Tonight at 10.30pm on BBC Two the next two bands perform - Zimbabwe's Mann Friday and Hashmat from Afghanistan. There will be two more on Wednesday and then on Thursday the winner will be crowned in our special programme on immigration.
