Time to Explore

It’s tired and perhaps a tad trite, but I do have to say that this week’s World Music Show (5/26) is going to be very global. I mean, just looking over my list, you’ll hear music from Palestine, Italy, Senegal, Sweden by way of New York and practically all points in South America will be covered.

So let’s start exploring.

Call it Euphoria

I’ve got the best feeling. It’s almost euphoric. But in the grand scheme of things, it’s falls pretty low in terms of overall importance. Here it is: the World Music Show (5/19) is current! Yep, it’s true. That’s the reason I’m giddy. Or a tad giddy (you don’t want to be too giddy).

Music You Can Shake A Stick At

What does this week's World Music Show (4/28) title mean? Well, it's all about the new music--they'll be more new music than you can shake a stick at--whatever that means. I'm not why that became a phrase.

Anyways, new music--that’s the key for this week’s World Music Show. Yes, I see what I did there, with that musical sort of pun, but don’t let that stop you from checking out this week’s show.

Because, here’s a brief glimpse into what to expect:

Talkin’ bout a Revolution

I think Tracy Chapman said it best when she sang ‘Talkin’ bout a Revolution.’ In this statement, which is both simple in context while at the same time powerful, it reminds me how in the world of world music, there are a slew of songs in this vein.

So on this week’s World Music Show (4/21) we’ll tackle this subject—using a few world music genres such as Afrobeat, Latin Rock and Reggae. But they’ll also be a few surprises along the way as well.
