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.

Get Under the Covers

So what do you get when you cross Hall & Oates, U2, Lou Reed and Morrissey? Well, you get a taste on what to expect for this week’s World Music Show (1/7).

That’s right, on this week’s show, we’re going to take a journey into one of my favorite realms—that of the World Music cover tunes. The entire show is dedicated to the fine art of songs that were redesigned with World Beats. From classic Pop tunes to some alternative tracks, these covers are going to hit almost every genre you can think of.

Out With The Old, In With The...

For the new year I thought I’d start this week’s World Music Show (1/7) off right by playing a bunch of new music. But then I remembered that it’s only been a week into the new year, so there’s nothing new to choose from. However, due to the enormous bounty that was in last year’s crop of new music, I will have some leftover goodness that will seep into this week’s show.

All that, however, will be saved for hour two of the show. Because in hour one, I was able to get a special guest into the studio to talk about a very interesting and rewarding project.

Top World Music Albums and Other Nonsuch for 2016

For this week’s World Music Show (12/31), I’m going to take a different route. Instead of regurgitating every little snippet of what I’ll be playing (though, I know some of you perhaps enjoy the read and the ride as much I enjoy writing them), I’m going to break down my “Best of” list like so many other musical countdowns do across the spectrum, meaning it’ll be a Letterman-esque Top Ten list. If I were to include everything I’m playing this week, the list would be “Top 28.”
