Nothing like the last minute to tell you what’s playing on this week’s World Music Show (5/4). As I write this, it’s only a few hours until show time. But I didn’t want to leave you in the dark as to what to expect, so let’s get rolling.
I know that’s the quite the bold headline. I mean, just who am I to make such a declarative statement, right? But, if you tune into this week’s World Music Show (3/25), then you’ll forgive my platitudes, hopefully. Plus, that header is a reference for sounds to come.
On the turntable (and I use that term figuratively) for this week's World Music Show (2/13), will be some new Brazilian music from a singer who's sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and who's the best female performer in that country with the most #1 hits. Plus, she's also virtually vinyl. Plus, get ready for a mini-salute to the Mexican band Cafe Tacuba, the band who's singer could be channeling Tom Waits.
It'll be a combination of African music on this week's World Music Show (1/23). From Afro-Latino to Afro-Portuguese to African Blues, we'll dip our toe into the pool of beautiful sounds that this continent has to offer. Plus, we'll also check out some strong female voices from around the globe as well as some Asian Groove music.
Sometimes things boil down to this. Once in awhile, you just have to shuffle, as in hit the shuffle button. Perhaps this is true not only on your portable musical player of choice, but in life as well. You can get stuck doing the mundane. So on this week's World Music Show (5/16), we'll attempt to launch ourselves off of the lazy Susan of normality.
