What are some of your favorite duets? Is it Donny & Marie? Captain & Tennnille? Or maybe I should be more current and world-music-like. So maybe it’s Ali Farka Toure and Toumani Diabate? If it’s more toward the latter (not that anything’s wrong with the former) then this week’s World Music Show (2/23) is for you.
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.
We’re barely into the new year and already I want to hide under the covers. Fortunately, the covers I’m talking about are World Music cover songs. So for this week’s World Music Show (1/12) we’ll get the opportunity to do just that. And, added to this theme, I’ll mix in some specific tunes that reference the 80s (as in the 1980s). It’ll be a beautiful mash-up.
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.
