A Musical Travelogue

On this week’s World Music Show (10/1), we’ll create a travelogue of musical souvenirs, with highlights in alternative Portuguese tunes, as well as some Rock-n-Roll tracks out of Russia. Plus, we’ll hear a melding of African & Brazilian music, as well as some groovy Gypsy songs.

Talkin’ bout a Revolution

I think Tracy Chapman said it best when she sang ‘Talkin’ bout a Revolution.’ In this statement, which is both simple in context while at the same time powerful, it reminds me how in the world of world music, there are a slew of songs in this vein.

So on this week’s World Music Show (4/21) we’ll tackle this subject—using a few world music genres such as Afrobeat, Latin Rock and Reggae. But they’ll also be a few surprises along the way as well.

It’s a Sofrito Party

Ok, listen. This week’s World Music Show (3/31) blog is going to be short and sweet. Time is of the essence this week, so I’m not going to delve too deeply into every wonderful musician that you’ll be hearing this week.

But I will say that everyone you’ll hear, you’ll enjoy all of them and it’ll be worthwhile to tune in or stream.

One group of note will be the duo of Eva and Peter. This duet play a style of Gypsy/Balkan and Romani music that both incorporates the past but has its roots in the present.
