World Music Show

 

The World Music Show with Ian Stewart Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. The World Music Show skips around the continents in search of modern (and classic) beats with the hopes of bringing the world closer together. Ian Stewart delves into styles such as Bossa Nova, Reggae, Afro-beat and Japanese pop, and explores regions or countries, such as Brazil, France and Asia to hear the sub-texts offered up from these areas. Plus, the show always showcases local (and American-style) World Music. The motto of The World Music Show is “Don’t Fear Music.” On Twitter @wcveworldmusic.

Stream Live starting at 8:00 p.m.

A Bevy of Goodness

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.

Stranger Things

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.
