On this week’s World Music Show (5/12), I really don’t have anything planned for Mother’s Day. I just thought that the above headline was an eye catcher. But what I do have lined up could be of interest to any mothers out there, so I guess you can give a “word to your mother” about tuning in.

One of the four working groups who are part of the Chesterfield School School Safety Task Force met today (5/10) to discuss Student Conduct and Discipline.
Get ready for some beautiful sounds on this week’s World Music Show (5/5). From early recordings of a master desert blues guitarist to some new music coming out of Turkey, Bulgaria, Israel, Iran, Greece, Spain, and England (and that’s just one band!), as well from Great Britain and Canada, the two-hour show will be a great place to stop and sit a spell.
The proposal by the Economic Development Authority in Chesterfield to rezone about 1700 acres from residential to heavy industrial use has been scrapped by the EDA today (5/3).
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:
Richmond is going to be on the world stage once again, thanks to an international competition. But this isn’t another bike race. Instead, it’s a world renown violin event in which 44 of the world’s best young violinists, some as young as 10, will be coming to RVA.
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.
The Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU is set to open its doors to the public tomorrow (4/20). It’s the largest privately funded arts project in VCU’s history and it’s Richmond’s first art institution dedicated exclusively to contemporary art.
The Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU is opening downtown. The building has striking features and sits at the historic intersection of Belvidere and Broad Street.
