IMPORTED [s01.e02]

with one comment

World Music from WKMS

Imported is WKMS’ premier international music program showcasing artists from all over the world. We combine an eclectic and genre-blending playlist with tracks by well-known and aspiring talent abroad. Hear Punjab, reggae, K-pop, indie, electronica and more from the mainstream to the culturally obscure.


Imported airs Sundays @ midnight on WKMS. Listen On-Demand here. (Episode 2 should be online Monday afternoon. If you missed Episode 1, check it out now!).

For our second bout of Imported, we (Chris/Georgena) introduce one of our favorite discoveries from Montreal, Canada:  Malajube! Watch this creative music video to get a taste of what they’re about with a song called -40º.

There’s a little bit of everything this episode with selections from: Swedish rock band Dungen, French rapper MC Solaar, L.A.-based latin artist Kuero, Jamaican reggae group The Congos, and much more. Hope you enjoy the ride!
