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.

Hi folks!  This week’s adventure begins with a little European punk.  Get ready to experience the gypsy punk phenomenon Gogol Bordello during our first set.

Next, we’ll head over to Norway for a little taste of Ida Maria, who will get you movin’ with her latest hit, I Eat Boys Like You for Breakfast.  And finally, we’ll end with the cool groove Junica by one of New Zealand’s finest, Over the Atlantic. And much more (LISTEN HERE).

Hey folks! What a neat little trip we have planned for you this Sunday (July 4)  @ Midnight or ANYTIME/ONDEMAND (once it’s posted.. not really sure about when that automated upload happens… Monday, maybe?) But we’ll get you a link ASAP!

In this show: we start out with a Bolly/Hollywood soundtrack hit from Academy Award-winning Artist/Producer/Composer AR Rahman.   We’ll take you to France to experience the triphop/electronic beats of Emilie Simon then later in the show we go Down Under with Xavier Rudd, a one-man band that will simply astound you (see video below).

 We’ll come back with some DJ Krush some more jazz-infused trip-hop; back to India with Apache Indian. Then we feature music with Latino influences from the likes of Grammy-winner Bebe and Jarabe De Palo, before finishing out the show with a remix from M.I.A. Hope you enjoy!
