With Scott Stevens

The show’s motto is Live Locally, Groove Globally, and it’s taken seriously! Hear upbeat music from the world over on this spirited celebration of musical culture in traditional and hybrid forms. You will hear all kinds of music from around the world, from Quawwali to Cajun, from sacred to secular, from Pakistani brass bands to klezmer. I’m especially fond of music that’s been through the blender–on “blend,” not on “puree”–such as the Turkish funk of Brooklyn Funk Essentials or the funky Nubian wedding music of Ali Hassan Kuban. I keep your feet and heart moving at the end of a long week or the beginning of a fun weekend.

I also bring you interviews of musicians, authors, and others impacting the world of “world music.” Guests have included Jewish ethnomusicologist Yale Strom, the all-woman Tuvan throat-singing group Tyva Kyzy, accordian-playing Khmer Rouge survivor Daran Kravanh, African jazz great Hugh Masekela, and uncategorizable groups like Vagabond Opera, among many others.

​World Music Mashup
