Music of the World with Stephen Kent
11:00 AM Pacific Time: Thursdays
In a musical journey that began in England in the late 1970’s, composer, performer, multi-instrumentalist and radio DJ Stephen Kent has blazed a trail across five continents, living at various times in East Africa, the UK, Spain, Australia and the USA. His musical scores, composed for theatre, circus and dance companies, have received international acclaim and his work as a performer and recording artist has established him as a unique talent in the global music scene. He is one of the foremost exponents of the Australian Aboriginal Didjeridu in contemporary music.
After something of a forced hiatus in his presence on the KPFA airwaves he is now producing Music of the World (4th Saturdays 9-11am) AND Off the Beaten Path (3rd, 4th, 5th Mondays – 10pm-Midnight)!
Stephen Kent will hosts Music of the World with live guests Techung – Tibetan Freedom Singer and activist in the first hour. Wang Wei – Chinese Master Drummer in the second hour.
Stephen Kent continues featuring music from women artists from around the world in this, the 4th week of International Women’s Month.
Music of the World Thursday March 3rd 10am-Noon, hosted by Stephen Kent, will feature an entire program dedicated to the music of women artists around the world – women’s voices and women composers.
