The Rhythm Atlas on 89.5-1
SUNDAYS AT 6PM
- Hosted by Denis McGilvray
The Rhythm Atlas, hosted by world music enthusiast Denis McGilvray, explores the vast array of musical styles that can be heard all over the globe, from Afrobeat to Zouk.
From 6 - 7 p.m. each Sunday, you’ll hear new releases as well as influential classics. The playlist might go from the African juju music of King Sunny Ade to cumbia dance music from Colombia; from Spanish flamenco guitar to a Celtic fiddle tune; from the dynamic Afro-Pop of Angélique Kidjo to the sitar fusion of Anoushka Shankar; a Balkan Beat band might follow some Scandinavian bluegrass. It’s a global gumbo, a funky fusion of international styles - you get the idea.
In short, it’s a musical adventure that will take you all around the world. And fair warning: you’ll most likely find yourself dancing at some point. It is The Rhythm Atlas, after all… Follow The Rhythm Atlas on Facebook for more information about artists played on the air, links to each week’s playlist, video and audio clips from featured performers, news about upcoming album releases, local concert listings, and more.
