2014-05-30 – World Music in the 1970s

World Music in the 1970sThe second in a series of decade-themed world music shows. The term “world music” didn’t appear as a marketing tool until the 1980s — so what did the music sound like before it had been pigeonholed into its own genre? This show answers that question, and includes a musical tribute to Maya Angelou dating even further back…to her 1957 calypso album!

2014-03-28 Pre-milennial World Music

Harry-Belafonte-and-Miriam-MakebaLooking at recent STG playlists, I noticed that much of the music played was recorded in the last 15 years. Time for us to set the wayback machine to pre-2000, and see what the last millennium sounded like. Music from the 1960s to the 1990s from around the planet in the first hour; new releases and concert previews in the second hour.

2014-01-17 — World Music Mix

Bixiga 70Hello again! Hope the lack of a show last week didn’t bring you down. Your host was away, wandering the desert. Back now, having seen cacti and lizards, sand and sedimentary rock, sunshine and blue skies. So I tried to pack extra goodness into this week’s show. You’ll find old and new music from the likes of Jaakko Laitinen & Väärä Raha, Angelique Kidjo, Barika, Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita, and Kila. A hard-to-define mix, but one I think you’ll enjoy. Happy listening!

2013-05-31 World Music in the 1980s

1980s global music sowetoThe first in a series of STG shows highlighting the world-music sounds of different decades. The 80s were when I really began discovering global sounds, so the show includes some of my early favorites plus many 80s artists & songs I’ve discovered since.

Bembeya Jazz, way back when

Old and new this week. New world music releases alternating with tunes 20, or 30, or 40 years old. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the old stuff — would you like to hear future shows dedicated to music from specific decades? All 1960s music / 1970s music? Earlier? Later? Let me know your thoughts, and you might hear this on a future episode.
