New Music from American Babies and Marco Benevento on Royal Potato Family

Royal Potato Family is a “farm to table” record label founded in 2009 by musician Marco Benevento and his manager/publicist Kevin Calabro. What started as a means to put out Marco’s music has expanded to include other artists whose musical aesthetic they believe in, with over 30 artists now on the roster.

Composer Laura Schwendinger Visits The Richmond Symphony

Composer Laura Schwendinger is in town with the Richmond Symphony this weekend, thanks to a residency program Music Alive: New Partnerships. This national program is designed to establish new relationships between composers and orchestras, and to help orchestras present new music to the public and build support for new music within their institutions.

Don't Fret About It

It's all in the numbers for this week's World Music Show (4/2). On the spreadsheet will be some new music from Anoushka Shankar, Karsh Kale and Daniela Mercury. Plus, we'll hear some street music out of South Africa and Ghana to total up the columns. But these are just the side notes to a show that will be full with all sort of beats.

Let's get Cooking!

We'll be cooking up a storm on this week's World Music Show (3/26), from some fiery Latin Rock N' Roll guitar music from the Ecuadorian/New York guitarist Eljuri to some burning New York Salsa tracks from Los Hacheros, it'll be a gumbo of pumped up sounds. Plus, we'll hear part two of the program within a program called "A Different Spin." And we'll take a drive using a roadmap by Complicated Animals as well as hear some beautiful harmonies from the Georgian singers Trio Mandili.

Rachel Barton Pine Talks Bach!

In celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach’s March 21st birthday, violinist Rachel Barton Pine is releasing her newest recording Testament: Complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin. I had the honor to sit down and talk with Rachel about the recording and the background that led her to choose these works. She also discussed the instrument and bow that she uses.

The CD will be available April 1st. Enjoy the interview!

Time to Boogie!

It's time to get your dancing shoes dusted off for this week's World Music Show (3/19). I'll layout some revved up Rumba, Mambo & Cha-Cha-Cha tunes as well as some Flamenco tracks that will be sure to get your feet moving. Plus, we'll take a spin around the new CD from the Ugandan artist Kinobe and the live CD from the Brazilian singer Ceu. And to get your feet grooving in a different way, we'll go back in time a few decades to hear some Reggae and Ska music.
