In one of my early explanations of what the gist of the World Music Show is, I compared it to hitting the frappe' button on a blender. Why frappe? Well, it sounds better than the shred or the simple chop button, right? On this week's World Music Show (7/23), I think the show comes close to mimicking this metaphor. That said, you can guess that it's going to be a mixed up show.
The World Music Show
Look, I don't mean to pummel your senses down with the fact that it's been uber hot here in RVA. But when it gets like this, my mind tends to become rather sleepy. And with that in mind, some of the tracks for this week's World Music Show (7/16) are of a dreamy and sleepy nature.
Ok, let's get that title reference out of the way before it scares anyone off from listening to this week's World Music Show (7/9). It's a play on the title to AMC's "Walking Dead" spin-off, "Fear the Walking Dead." Now, how, you may ask, can I associate that show with this week's World Music Show? Well, there's a great tie-in, which I'll get to, right after this brief commercial break.

Looking out among the vast sea of sounds for this week's World Music Show (7-2-16), I see that we'll groove to some electronic tango music and we'll visit some beats from the magical land of Bongolia. Plus, we'll even hear what Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, sounds like when he plays with some Aztec Indians. And that, as they say is just the tip of the iceberg.
