What's on the Musical Menu

What’s going on for this week’s World Music Show (5/27)? Well, it’s a star-studded, full blown celebration of some newly released CDs. Or is that overselling it a bit? Either way, there is some great tunes lined up for this week. And, just to give you a taste, here’s a brief menu run-down.

In the appetizer section, your choices are as follows (though, really, you have no choice, since it’s been pre-selected. Perhaps this is a French menu?

Back to Basics

In the past few weeks, I feel like, due to the every expanding cavalcade of new music that have been gratefully flooding the offices of 88.9 WCVE, we need to take a step back a bit. So on this week’s World Music Show (5/20), that we’re going to go back to basics.

A Brazilian Love-Fest

It’s going to be a Brazilian love-fest on this week’s World Music Show (5-13). In the first hour, I’ll have an interview with the founder of the band Forro in the Dark. We’ll talk about their new CD as well as some of the great musicians they’ve worked with. Then for the rest of the show, we’ll explore the subcultures of Brazilian music. So either you way you slice it, the Brazilian beats are going to be thick this week, which is by no means a bad thing.
