I’m beyond excited about this week’s World Music Show (2/9) because I was lucky enough to get local Richmond Reggae musician Mighty Joshua and his band Zion #5 into the studios at WCVE Music to record a brief set.
You’re in luck on this week’s World Music Show (1-5) because for the first show of the new year, I was able to interview two members of the fantastic French quartet Paris Combo. This band has been playing their own unique blend of Swing/American Jazz and World-Beat-infused tracks for more than 20 years.
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).

Some of the highlights from our trip to the World Lounge include many tracks off several Putumayo record label releases, including:
I’ll get right to the point for this week’s World Music Show (9/30). I’ve got a few worthwhile things going on. From a musical nod to storm and earthquake ravaged Puerto Rico and Mexico, to some new music, it’ll be a shame to miss.
There’s been a ton of natural disasters going on lately, which seems overwhelming to fathom (especially for those directly involved). But what can we do (besides of course donate much needed money, supplies and attention) to ease the trauma of such events?
