Of her next broadcast, DJ Darla Bea writes: “Join me on Santa Barbara’s School of Rock and listen up this Sunday, February 15th. Class is in session for a lesson in the musical phenomenon called ‘Worldbeat!’

‘DARLAPEDIA’ says Worldbeat is a music genre that blends Western pop music or rock music with traditional, folk or world music influences.

Hear Worldbeat musicians like: Peter Gabriel, David Byrne, Paul Simon, M.I.A., Dead Can Dance, Deep Forest, Zap Mama, Yothu Yindi, Joe Strummer, Fool’s Gold, and more.

Learn about the emergence of the term during the mid-1980s, and prepare yourself for a far-reaching musical journey. Tune in too for a special segment celebrating the 65th birthday of the innovative and influential British artist Peter Gabriel!

Get ready to rock out across the continents!”

“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the winter from 8-10pm PST.
