Do you Ska? Are you Rocksteady? Perhaps you’re more of a Two-Tone type? If none of these terms make sense to you, don’t worry. On this week’s World Music Show (3/10), I’ll be explaining them all.
Call it what you will, but come this time of year, the heat and humidity cause my brain to get a little wonky. It's a good thing I don't have hair, otherwise I could add big hair to my conundrum. However, despite the wonkiness of the season, I am able to get solace by playing some music that fits perfectly into this season. With that in mind, on this week's World Music Show (8/13), we'll get our Reggae vibes on by grooving to tracks from Bob & Ziggy Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh and more.
That's right. Here comes the beat, along with Ska, harmonies and some desert guitar music. In fact, this week's World Music Show (2/20) could be titled or sub-titled: Beats, Ska & Harmonies (as a reference to the Rap band with a similar name).
But this is just the tip of the drumstick my friends.
There's a few things going on for this week's World Music Show (10/31). Sure, they'll be some Halloween-inspired World Music tunes but, to be in the spirit of the day, that's just the tip of the knife or the start of the candy meltdown. The bulk of the show will be a shuffled up mess of songs, in which we jump locales, genres and styles. Plus, added in just for kicks, they'll also be some great cover tunes just to keep the flow going.
