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.
The World Music Show
There are times in which I feel like time traveling. As of late, these seems to happen quite a bit. However, since I’m no Dr. Who, I can do this musically at the drop of a needle (or in this case, hit the play button). On this week’s World Music Show (11/10) we’ll time travel to the Brazil, circa late 60s and early 1970s.
When pulling together the tracks for this week’s World Music Show (11/3) I usually try to stay away from national news and things. Sometimes some of my themes will touch base on a particular trend or event (like an election).
But with this past week’s killing of 11 senior citizens at the Temple of Life Synagogue in Pittsburg, I thought I’d show some solidarity and respect by playing some songs off a powerful CD called “Yiddish Glory: the lost songs of WWII.”
When pulling tracks together for this week’s World Music Show (10/27) I usually go and grab The Specials “Ghost Town.” I do this because it’s an easy, fun little tie in to Halloween. Sure, from the outside, it’s an obvious pick.
