Harmony. Harmony can mean many things. From the obvious meaning in music to the slightly obscure or obtuse one in terms of cohesiveness, harmony is nice solid word. On this weeks World Music Show (2/6), I'll attempt the almost impossible: To stay harmonious throughout the two-hour broadcast.
We hope you will join us this Saturday night (2/6/16) on Time for the Blues as Henry and I have put together a great show with some very exciting blues that we think you are really going to enjoy! Plus we're featuring Texas bluesman Benny Turner, appearing in Richmond next weekend!
If you're a frequent listener to the World Music Show, then you may know that I love cover songs--you know, when a World Music artist or band covers a well known song or artist, but does it in their own unique and worldly way. Well, on this week's World Music Show (1/30), I'll do this once again. However, it'll come with a tinge of sadness. But then we'll take that tinge and tweak it back up to some positive beats.
The Symphony Musicians of Richmond will present a benefit concert for the United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg on Monday, February 1st at 7:00 p.m. at St. Michael Catholic Church in Glen Allen.
It'll be a combination of African music on this week's World Music Show (1/23). From Afro-Latino to Afro-Portuguese to African Blues, we'll dip our toe into the pool of beautiful sounds that this continent has to offer. Plus, we'll also check out some strong female voices from around the globe as well as some Asian Groove music.
A shuffle here...a shuffle there...here a beat...there a beat, that's the theme for this week's World Music Show (1/16). In fact, you could call it a "What's on my IPod Show." From Brazilian and East African tracks to Indian sitar music and classic Ska, it'll be a mishmash of styles. And, if you really want remember this show, you should grab your cassette recorder and put the mic right next to your speakers and hit record, because the show is going to be that good.
It was a grand night at our facilities here on November 17, 2015. We had our 30th year anniversary concert for The Electric Croude. And this week on the show (1/16), you can enjoy highlights from some of the most talented musicians around.
Held in our large TV Studio A, it was the end result of months of planning--hiring the best sound company, co-ordinating performers--all sorts of behind-the-scene logistics that make a presentation seem effortless.
If you were to look over the weather calendar or almanac for the past month, then you might be one to utter the phrase, "If you don't like the weather in Richmond, just wait 30 minutes." Now, I think that phrase actually came from somewhere else, but you can get where I'm headed. The weather here has been very wacky here lately. And with that in mind, on this week's World Music Show (1/9), it'll be time to grab the sun tan lotion and a towel because we're getting into beach mode in order to battle this kooky weather.
