island vacation getaway

January 10, 2010

(Kauai sunset, photo by Karen Worrell)

Fiji, Tahiti, Hawaii, Trinidad, Jamaica, the Seychelles – what do these tropical paradises have in common?

Yes, they’re all places Northerners dream about when the mercury is stuck well below freezing for days on end. They’re also places we’ll be visiting in music on this week’s World of Music.

It’s the popular annual “island vacation getaway” show, with enough steel guitars, ukuleleles, pan drums and maracas to shake off the post-Christmas winter blahs and fill your head with visions of palm trees and orchids.

World of Music is a parasailing, rum-sipping, cocktail mix of blues, jazz, poetry, and world music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator.  Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.

Get some sand in your shoes with us this week.

back in business, bach in havana

August 16, 2009

bach_havana

World of Music returns from vacation this week with tropical tunes made just for the (newly arrived) heat of summer. Cuba’s Tiempo Libre answers the question, “what happens when J.S. Bach hooks up with a hot band from Havana”? Their latest recording fuses Bach’s melodies with Cubano congas, timbales and non-stop dance grooves.

We’ll also check out new sounds from Guinea-Bissau, Holland, Hawaii, and the Brit threesome Triabolique.

World of Music returns to the air tomorrow on the Radiator, online (3-5pm EDT) or at 105.9FM in Burlington, VT.
