World Music Show

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.

The Long & Short of It

I love themes. I love dissecting stories, plots, ideas and songs. Plus, I love twists. Twists in literature, and in song lyrics and in movies. However, only a few of these points are a part of this week's World Music Show (11/21). Namely, a theme. And the theme for this week's show is "The Long & Short of It." And the "it" is of course, World Music. And broken down even further, it means that we'll explore an hour of some very long World Music Beats paired with an hour of some very short but sweet World Music tracks.

Running on World Music

Ok legs, let's go. We've got many miles to cover. On this week's World Music Show (11/14), we're trying to cram too much stuff into one theme or idea. First up, there's the show happening this week, which has it's own playlist. And if you can't tell, the theme is about running (more on that in a moment). And second, there's a brand new function or "thing" that we've created for you to enjoy (if you're a runner or even if you're not) which is also dedicated to running (more on that later).

A Little Down Time

Perhaps it's the impending holidays or I guess you can say that we've now jumped off the high dive and are hurtling toward the watery abyss of holiday madness below. Halloween? Done! Thanksgiving? Just up ahead. You can see where I'm going with this. So, on this week's World Music Show (11/7), I'm going to help you slow down a bit. Because if we don't take a few moments to just take a breath, then before you know it, it'll be a new year and a new set of holidays.
