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.
So it may be a brand new year as well as a brand new season, but on this week's World Music Show (1/2), we'll take a dip back to hear more of my favorite songs and styles from previous seasons. From a big chunk of Latin music, featuring Samba Soul and Electronic Tango sounds to a nice bag of African music, featuring tracks from South Africa, the sounds may not be new, but they will be fresh (at least this time around).
