Now, before you get scared at the "Terrible Enfants" part of the headline, don't worry, I'll explain it in a moment. Let's first start with a brief synopsis for this week's World Music Show (12/12), then we'll discuss the moving part. The breakdown involves prisons, lounges, live music, Big Noise, change and oh yeah, those enfants.
The World Music Show
Tis' the season for Friends, Fun and Frivolity, which is good because that's sort of the theme for this week's World Music Show (12/5). But it's also the season for hectic comings and goings, and with that in mind, here's a brief rundown: We'll groove to some Malian guitar work courtesy of Ali Farka Toure, and dance to some Cumbia tunes from Chico Trujillo. Plus, we'll hear new roots-reggae music from Cas Haley as well as some Bi-lingual Latin love songs from the singer Carrie Rodriguez.
On this week's World Music Show (11/28), we'll give a musical nod to France. From acoustic to Django-inspired tunes, to even some electronic and acrobatic gypsy pop music, I'll cover some very swinging music. Plus, on the outskirts of all that, we'll hear some local reggae music from the Mighty Joshua as well as some Bombay beats.
I love themes. I love dissecting stories, plots, ideas and songs. Plus, I love twists. Twists in literature, and in song lyrics and in movies. However, only a few of these points are a part of this week's World Music Show (11/21). Namely, a theme. And the theme for this week's show is "The Long & Short of It." And the "it" is of course, World Music. And broken down even further, it means that we'll explore an hour of some very long World Music Beats paired with an hour of some very short but sweet World Music tracks.
Ok legs, let's go. We've got many miles to cover. On this week's World Music Show (11/14), we're trying to cram too much stuff into one theme or idea. First up, there's the show happening this week, which has it's own playlist. And if you can't tell, the theme is about running (more on that in a moment). And second, there's a brand new function or "thing" that we've created for you to enjoy (if you're a runner or even if you're not) which is also dedicated to running (more on that later).
