The World Music Show

Unsung Heroes & Trailblazers of African Music

On this week’s World Music Show (2/17) we try and tackle a theme of music as big as the continent itself. We’ll be checking out some of the unsung heroes and trailblazers of African music.

Now, I know that this is a big task, since there are many great countries in Africa that all produce such great music. And in the past, I’ve chopped up the country into geographical bits via the compass (North, South, etc). But on this go-round, we’ll just be checking out some of the best of the best, as well as some who may not have reached your musical radar.

Bummed Out City

Listen. Before anyone jumps to conclusions, I’ll reveal the meaning behind this week’s World Music Show (2/10) headline a tad later in this blog. Let’s just go with that it sort of, kind of, almost, in a small way, reflects some tiny theme hidden in this week’s show.

But first, on with the show…

Magnum Columbo--Musical Detective

Sometimes I feel like I’m a detective--a musical detective. Perhaps my name should be “Magnum Columbo” or “Inspector Dorkus,”  because on this week’s World Music Show (2/2/18), I try to uncover some interesting musical tidbits not often heard on the radio. And in this week’s two-parter episode, I’ll be exploring all Brazil has to offer.

#WomenWhoRuleTheWorld & #PunkRockGirls

If only I could title this week’s World Music Show (1/27) blog “Women Who Rock!” Because that title encompasses the power and the message and the “umph” that I think this week’s show will produce. The alternative title, “World Music Women,” or “Women who are Worldly” just doesn’t have the same feeling.

So what’s a World Music Show host to do?

A Baguette of Tunes

I’m assuming like most cultures, the French hate cliches as much as any culture—especially when it comes to describing all things French. I mean, it’s too easy to fill up a beret of croissant filled images of all things Parisian. So on this week’s World Music Show (1/20), I’ll try to avoid using cliches to describe some of the great French music that will dominate the first hour like a shadow of the Eiffel Tower over a cafe.
