Talk about some lost and found sound! On this week's World Music Show (2/28), we'll hear some recent--not even released yet--music as well as some found or rather discovered prison music from the city of Zomba and we'll take some Asian and African travels to unearth some global dance music. And that's just the tip of the musical iceburg, if there was such a thing.
The World Music Show
The era of "new music" continues. You see, over the past few weeks, I've been lucky enough to feature some brand-spanking new music. And for this week's World Music Show (9/21), the trend continues. But don't worry, enjoying all this newness won't be complicated, which of course leads me to talk about the first bit of new music we'll hear.
Man, I have to tell you--there is so much love packed into this week's World Music Show (2/14), that you're going to want to grab a doggie bag to take the remainder of beats left over after the show's over. Mixed metaphors aside, the show is brimming more than 31 songs about love, done World Music style--and done with the sub-headline of: The Good, the Bad and The Ugly (or an addendum to this may be: strange, off-kilter or just off).
One of the best parts of hosting a show based around World Music, is that you get to feature all sorts of instruments you won't normally find, say, in your average Rock or Jazz band. So, with that in mind, on this week's World Music Show (2/7), we'll get to sonically sample all sorts of unique instruments and sounds for that matter. Because when it boils down to it--what's better than hearing music that you don't normally get to listen to?
Sometimes, in the depths of these frigid days, you need an escape plan. You know, a place in which you can wash away the cold days of winter and bask in the glow of all things warm. Whether it be just a beam of sunlight streaming through the car window or an actual trip to warmer climates, little breaks in the dregs of winter cold sure do make a big difference. So, on this week's World Music Show (1/31), we'll attempt to bottle that warmness, then pour it out over the airwaves or digital waves in hopes of bringing some sunlight into the cold nights of January.
