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.

Stream Live starting at 8:00 p.m.

Head in the Sand

Ah vacation. What a great time to tune out, or tune in perhaps. On this week’s World Music Show (8/18), I’m continuing my thread from last week of vacation-tinged report. But this edition won’t be filled with beach-beats or wave-inspired tunes. On the other hand, it’ll be crafted with some great Latin tunes of from many corners of this huge genre. And it’ll be dotted with some gems of Afrobeat, some Dutch music and some classic Ska.

Now if you want to dig your head in the sand to get a better sense of what I’ll be playing, then get your shovel ready.

Vacation Mode

One of the good things about vacation is that you can kind of put things on hold. However, on this week’s World Music Show (8/11) even though I’ll be on a vacation, the show will be fresh and new (well, sort of).

The Epitome of World Music

Sometimes shows just click. For instance on this week’s World Music Show (8/4), many of the artists I’m featuring encompass so many parts of the world with just their style. So, instead of concentrating on particular regions on the show this week, many of the songs will encompass all sorts of worldly styles. What could be better than that?
