The Rhythm Atlas, a weekly program hosted by world music enthusiast Denis McGilvray, explores the vast array of fantastic musical styles that can be heard all over the globe, from Afrobeat to Zouk.

The 1-hour program is produced in the studios of Public Radio Tulsa - KWGS 89.5 FM and airs on Sundays at 6 p.m. (Central time.)

On The Rhythm Atlas, 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 Afropop 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…
