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.
The World Music Show
What’s going on for this week’s World Music Show (5/27)? Well, it’s a star-studded, full blown celebration of some newly released CDs. Or is that overselling it a bit? Either way, there is some great tunes lined up for this week. And, just to give you a taste, here’s a brief menu run-down.
In the appetizer section, your choices are as follows (though, really, you have no choice, since it’s been pre-selected. Perhaps this is a French menu?
In the past few weeks, I feel like, due to the every expanding cavalcade of new music that have been gratefully flooding the offices of 88.9 WCVE, we need to take a step back a bit. So on this week’s World Music Show (5/20), that we’re going to go back to basics.
It’s going to be a Brazilian love-fest on this week’s World Music Show (5-13). In the first hour, I’ll have an interview with the founder of the band Forro in the Dark. We’ll talk about their new CD as well as some of the great musicians they’ve worked with. Then for the rest of the show, we’ll explore the subcultures of Brazilian music. So either you way you slice it, the Brazilian beats are going to be thick this week, which is by no means a bad thing.
More newness is seeping into yet another week’s World Music Show (5/6). This not only means good news for your ears, but good news for your method of listening—whether it’s a full-blown Hi-Fi system or a little transistor radio—ok yes, I’m totally dating myself. Because I’m sure you’re hunkered down in your Opal or your Volvo wagon while listening to the show, or perhaps you’re lying on your twin bed listening on your clock radio. But whatever your choice of listening device, this week’s show has something for everyone.
