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.

Sounds Lost & Found

Talk about some lost and found sound! On this week's World Music Show (2/28), we'll hear some recent--not even released yet--music as well as some found or rather discovered prison music from the city of Zomba and we'll take some Asian and African travels to unearth some global dance music. And that's just the tip of the musical iceburg, if there was such a thing.

It's Not Complicated

The era of "new music" continues. You see, over the past few weeks, I've been lucky enough to feature some brand-spanking new music. And for this week's World Music Show (9/21), the trend continues. But don't worry, enjoying all this newness won't be complicated, which of course leads me to talk about the first bit of new music we'll hear.

Love--World Music Style

Man, I have to tell you--there is so much love packed into this week's World Music Show (2/14), that you're going to want to grab a doggie bag to take the remainder of beats left over after the show's over. Mixed metaphors aside, the show is brimming more than 31 songs about love, done World Music style--and done with the sub-headline of: The Good, the Bad and The Ugly (or an addendum to this may be: strange, off-kilter or just off).
