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.

Don't Be Afraid

To some, different music, World Music in fact, can be an almost scary thing. Well, on this week's World Music Show (5/30), I'll set to ease your fears, if any. And, if you're not fearful of different beats, then this week's show will just be a good kick in the pants--you know, a show filled with a mixture of interesting beats culled from all over the globe.

Duets, Duos & Double Whammys

So, once in awhile I like to do theme shows. Thus is the case for this weeks World Music Show (5/23). And, as eluded to in the head line for this week, it's all about the doubles...well, for the most part. We'll see how this adventure ends up because in this weeks particular theme, we'll run the gamut of frivolity. However, there may be a bump in the road of this challenge along the way.

A Smorgasbord of Random Tunes

Sometimes things boil down to this. Once in awhile, you just have to shuffle, as in hit the shuffle button. Perhaps this is true not only on your portable musical player of choice, but in life as well. You can get stuck doing the mundane. So on this week's World Music Show (5/16), we'll attempt to launch ourselves off of the lazy Susan of normality.
