On this week’s World Music Show (10/1), we’ll create a travelogue of musical souvenirs, with highlights in alternative Portuguese tunes, as well as some Rock-n-Roll tracks out of Russia. Plus, we’ll hear a melding of African & Brazilian music, as well as some groovy Gypsy songs.
As I write out this week’s World Music Show (4/20) blog, I’m blaring “Divine Intervention” by Matthew Sweet in the empty office (it’s a holiday weekend for some). Before you comment that it’s not a World Music track, it’s ok--I’m global and play all sorts of things.
Occasionally I step into the world of theatre to bring you a preview of local shows in our area. This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with two long-time faculty members of VCU Theatre during my show.
