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.

Hop Aboard

There's plenty of room for you to hop aboard the mobile musical camel on this week's World Music Show (4/23). From some really great desert music by one of the best rated guitarists in the world, to some classic Juju tunes as well as some lost and found Cuban music, this week's show should have something for everyone, whether you like to ride camels or not.

Have a Seat

Look. I know it's been sort of a rough week for you, so why don't you have a seat? Sit a spell and hear the tale of what's going on for this week's World Music Show (4/16). Because I guarantee that after you peruse what's in store, you'll look forward to Saturday night and leave the show feeling happier and even more well-adjusted (Ok, that could be stretching it.)

Out of Africa

It's time to get out of Africa for this week's World Music Show (4/9). Wait, what I mean is, it's time to get some superior sounds out of the African continent, at least in the first hour of the show. From the wonderful strings of Ali Farka Toure, Toumani Diabate, and Tinariwen to the powerful vocal chords of Angelique Kidjo, we'll be taking a mini-sound tour of some different parts of the Africa.
