This week's World Music Show (1/17/15), will play like an an episode of "When Worlds Collide." After looking over this week's set list, I've noticed that there's seems to be quite a bit of mash-ups going on. From Samba Soul 70s music, to Electronic Tango music, to techno-ish throat singing, the term "When Worlds Collide," will take on a new meaning--and those brief examples are just the tip of the iceberg (or the start of the record, or the first track of the CD or side one of the cassette--ok, enough bad metaphors). I think you get the point.
We hope you’ll join us this week (1/10/15) on Time for the Blues because Henry and I have cooked up something very special for you. Alongside of our normal great music and bad jokes, we’re going to have a little company stop by for a chat.
Once in awhile, it's a good idea to take a trip. You know, get faraway in order to explore a region's culture in order to see the world in a different light and perhaps gain insight on yourself. So, with that in mind, on this week's World Music Show (1/10/15), we'll do just that--just think of the savings!
With the Holidays being (almost) over, I thought that for this week's World Music Show (1/3), we could take it easy---sort of. Mixed throughout the 2-hour show will be some excellent acoustic covers of songs orginally done by David Bowie, Michael Jackson and The Beatles (all of these sung in Portuguese).
In the second part of Rumbleseat Revival’s performance, you’ll hear When the Sun Goes Down in Harlem (originally by the Harlem Hamfats), as well as Lady Quit Her Husband Unexpectedly (originally recorded by Stovepipe No. 1 in 1924), Gershwin’s Summertime and finally Shalom Secunda’s Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen.
