On the menu for this week's World Music Show (6/27), it'll be a Cuban & Latin feast of sorts. We'll sample some live music from Buena Vista Social Club, some film music from Mario Grigorov and some classic Cuban beats from the one & only Desi Arnaz. Plus, thrown into the mix will be desert blues music and some upbeat Brazilian music from the legendary man pointing a finger at you—Tom Ze.
The World Music Show
World Music--Father's Day/Kids-who also play music Show (6/20)... and to run several stereotypes into the ground, us Dads are busy (but aren't we all)--and we're also lazy (no, not really--again, stereotypes). So, because I myself am both busy and sometimes lazy, I think this week's blog will be a bit brief. Besides, sometimes it's good to just look at pictures and read the highlights.
Yes, it's getting to be that time of year again. You know, when the daylight likes to stick around for just a tad longer and the warmth (or in some cases, extreme humidity), makes it ok to stay out late into the night. It's times like these that make me think about live music--not that I don't like to think about it during the Fall or Winter, but it's this pre-Summer time time that makes me think of going out, under in the dusk, to hear some live music.
Here's the thing about friends, sometimes they do pretty cool things, like when they travel to faraway places, like Ecuador, and bring back music for your show. Or when they partner up with you on a reggae duet (yes, I'm talking about the lead pictuare featuring Mick Jagger and Peter Tosh, not me). On this week's World Music Show (6/6), we'll delight in some of that friendliness. And with these two examples, you could say that I am vicariously living through friends, in one form or another.
To some, different music, World Music in fact, can be an almost scary thing. Well, on this week's World Music Show (5/30), I'll set to ease your fears, if any. And, if you're not fearful of different beats, then this week's show will just be a good kick in the pants--you know, a show filled with a mixture of interesting beats culled from all over the globe.
