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.

Take a Psychedelic Trip

We’re going to take a psychedelic trip on this week’s World Music Show (7/22). That’s right, it’s time to don our bell bottoms, funky high heels-for both men and women of course, and turn on the black light because we’re going to take a trip in more ways than one.

And this being World Music, you know that the beats we hear tonight, including ones from Brazil, Turkey and India, are going to be trippy. Plus, thrown into this crazy mix will be some other interesting sounds, including some Tuvan throat singing, some Gypsy music as well some Bollywood dance music.

Grab your Lawn Chair

There’s something communal and even uplifting about attending a concert—whether it’s an indoor or outdoor one. So, on this week’s World Music Show (7/8), I’ll attempt to do just that—recreate that vibe you get when you share an event like a show.

Sure, we’ll have to use our imaginations to get that feeling together, but I think we can manage that.
