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.

Beats O’ Plenty

It’s going to be big beats O’ sound for this week’s World Music Show (1/13). From an hour of Afrobeat, with a look at its past, present and future, to some classic Brazilian beats by a master statesmen who worked some hip-hop legends, to some Dub beats as well as some brand-spanking new Latin alternative music, it’ll be Beats O’ Plenty!

To jump start our foray into this magical land, you’ll first have to strap on those ear-goggles or crank up the speakers to just about maximum, since you’ll want to take full advantage of the music.

Just Chills, No Frills

As the title to this week’s World Music Show (1-6) implies, it’ll be a bare-bones sort of show. Now, does this mean that there won’t be any spark or fire beneath the beats I’ve cooked up for us? Not at all. It just means that with all the hoopla and rigermorale of the holiday season behind us, it’s a good time to just take a step back and enjoy the show.

The Top 14 Songs/Bands of 2017

Well, here it is—the end of the road for 2017. Which means it’s time for the final Best of the Best for this week’s World Music Show (12/20). If you’ve been reading the blogs for the past month, then you’ll remember that we’ve been highlighting some of the best music that we were lucky enough to receive. And with that, I’m not going to delve into each band/or song too much, since you can go back and see all my notes from the past month.
