It's time to get out of Africa for this week's World Music Show (4/9). Wait, what I mean is, it's time to get some superior sounds out of the African continent, at least in the first hour of the show. From the wonderful strings of Ali Farka Toure, Toumani Diabate, and Tinariwen to the powerful vocal chords of Angelique Kidjo, we'll be taking a mini-sound tour of some different parts of the Africa.
The World Music Show
It's all in the numbers for this week's World Music Show (4/2). On the spreadsheet will be some new music from Anoushka Shankar, Karsh Kale and Daniela Mercury. Plus, we'll hear some street music out of South Africa and Ghana to total up the columns. But these are just the side notes to a show that will be full with all sort of beats.
We'll be cooking up a storm on this week's World Music Show (3/26), from some fiery Latin Rock N' Roll guitar music from the Ecuadorian/New York guitarist Eljuri to some burning New York Salsa tracks from Los Hacheros, it'll be a gumbo of pumped up sounds. Plus, we'll hear part two of the program within a program called "A Different Spin." And we'll take a drive using a roadmap by Complicated Animals as well as hear some beautiful harmonies from the Georgian singers Trio Mandili.
It's time to get your dancing shoes dusted off for this week's World Music Show (3/19). I'll layout some revved up Rumba, Mambo & Cha-Cha-Cha tunes as well as some Flamenco tracks that will be sure to get your feet moving. Plus, we'll take a spin around the new CD from the Ugandan artist Kinobe and the live CD from the Brazilian singer Ceu. And to get your feet grooving in a different way, we'll go back in time a few decades to hear some Reggae and Ska music.
I know. It's just around the corner. That "holiday" known as St. Patrick's Day. And that's right, I gave the holiday some quote marks. I'll get to that in bit. But there's something else on the horizon for this week's World Music Show (3/12). And I'll get to that too in greater detail down below. But for those who require a quickie, or who want a just the facts, well then, here you go.
