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.

Have Covers, Will Travel

It's no secret, at least if you're a frequent listener to the World Music Show. I love cover tunes--as in World Music versions of songs you've may have heard dozens of times before. So, on this week's World Music Show (8/1), we'll dive into worldly versions of songs originally done by Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie and U2--but that's just the tip of iceberg.

Parlez-vous Français?

If I were a screamer or a loud talker, then I'd say this, in my best announcer voice (and not in all caps, because that's just wrong): Get Ready for the Battle Royale on this week's World Music Show (7/25) when we pit male vs. female in the realm of French pop singers from the 1960s. And in a lower,calmer voice, I'd also say that we'll sample some reggae done local style by the Mighty Joshua and we'll check out more music from Buenos Aires via Axel Krygier.

Dog Days of Summer Blues?

Got the Summertime blues? Are the dog says of summer getting to you? Now before you get confused, I'm not John Porter or Henry Cook from Time for The Blues--I'm not that cool. My genre is World Music. And on this week's World Music Show (7/18), we'll attempt to alleviate any of the doldrums you may be experiencing thus far into the summertime.
