On this week’s World Music Show (10/1), we’ll create a travelogue of musical souvenirs, with highlights in alternative Portuguese tunes, as well as some Rock-n-Roll tracks out of Russia. Plus, we’ll hear a melding of African & Brazilian music, as well as some groovy Gypsy songs.

A Bevy of Sound

Welcome one and all to the fabulous spectacle that is this week’s World Music Show (10/22). Ok, perhaps that’s over selling it a bit, but that could be because I’ve seen the playlist and I know that this week’s show will do its best to thrill and entertain you—or at least it’ll help you pass the time for a few hours on a Saturday night.

Accordion Crimes & Other Misdemeanors

So what does the Accordion, Keith Richards and Led Zeppelin have to do with World Music? Well, they’re all part of this week’s World Music Show (10/15/16), in which we’ll investigate crimes against the accordion, or rather we’ll explore this magical instrument as it travels through some of the crevasses of World Music. As for the Richards and Zeppelin reference? You’ll have to read through this week’s Top Ten List to find out.

Interview with Marco Benevento: How an Old Piano Helped Inspire His New Album

Pianist Marco Benevento first gained attention as one-half of the Benevento/Russo Duo, his instrumental indie/jam partnership with drummer Joe Russo. Although he and Russo continue to collaborate frequently in various ensembles, Benevento is now several years into a solo career that has seen him develop into a full-on entertainer: incorporating vocals, synths and dance-rock into his live shows and recordings. His newest album, The Story of Fred Short, came out earlier this year.
