Global Village

Saturday at 2:00 pm central time
  • Hosted by Chris Heim

Join us for a musical adventure with Global Village. From classic recordings to the latest new releases, from right around the corner to halfway around the world, host Chris Heim presents a wide range of world music, along with jazz, rock, folk and other styles, artists and songs with world and roots influences. Each month, we also focus on a particular artist, style or theme, going deeper into the music and offering some rare and seldom heard selections. Each week  is a different musical journey, with music that is unusual and intriguing, yet still seems very close to home.

For the fourth year in row, Global Village is a winner in the annual Public Radio Exchange (PRX) Zeitfunk Awards. Global Village, has been named Number Three among 2014 Most Licensed Series. Global Village also received the about.com 2013 Readers Choice Award for the Best World Music Radio Show.

"Global Village, produced at KMUW in Wichita, Kansas and broadcast on stations around the world (as well as online), is one of the finest world music programs on the airwaves. DJ Chris Heim really knows her stuff, and consistently presents a fantastic hour of music, carefully curated around a theme, and peppered with exactly the right amount of chatter and useful information." - Megan Romer, About.com Guide

On September 22nd, High Plains Public Radio headed over to Albuquerque, NM for one of the most inspirational music festivals in the US: ¡Globalquerque! This world music collective brings together global artists in a way no other festival does, with inspirational, soul-lifting performances. It takes place each year at the National Hispanic Cultural Center—an incredible space for a truly unique festival. Performances take place across three stages: the intimate courtyard setting of the Fountain Courtyard, the state of the art 692-seat Albuquerque Journal Theater, & dance outside on the Plaza Mayor. You can learn more about the Global Fiesta free Saturday daytime programming and the Global Village of Crafts, Culture and Cuisine.
