It's time to cut to chase on this week’s World Music Show (3/18) because there’s a lot happening around town and in the studios in the next week. And because of all that, I want to make sure that you—faithful listener—are in tune with what’s going on and have a chance to attend some of these great events.
The World Music Show
There have been some strange things in the world of World Music. Sure, some happen to think that World Music involves the spiritual, ethereal sounds of wind chimes, chants and handclaps led by people wearing burlap sacks or something of the sort. However relevant or not those styles of World Music are, in my book, I seldom give them any credence. But more importantly, what does this have to do with this week’s World Music Show (3/11)?
In a word: Zilch.
The adjective “gigantic” is a fun one to use. It can describe so many things. But is it apropos to be the umbrella which protects the contents of a World Music Show? Sure! Why not! Because on this week’s World Music Show (3/4), they’ll be some gigantic beats to protect, or rather more aptly project.
More than 11 years ago, my wife and I read a great book called “What to Expect when Expecting,” which if you don’t know is about having a baby. Well, on this week’s World Music Show (2/25), I could stretch or mutilate that title and pirate it for this week’s show, as in “What to Expect in World Music.” I admit, it is a stretch. And, for those who may be looking for hidden clues in this blog, no, my wife and I are not “expecting.”
Coming up on this week’s World Music Show (2/1), we’ll dig our way thru more new music from Piers Faccini’s new CD called I Dreamed an Island, which he wrote in real time. Plus, we’ll hear more newness and goodness from the bands Compass and Nouvelle Vague. And if that weren’t enough, we’ll also hear a Spanish cover band whose speciality is Morrissey.
