Ziggy Stardust and Cindi Mayweather set the stage for intergalactic music personas as we know them on Earth. But now, we’re tuning the dial to Billy Bob Bo Bob, already on his sonic quest to unite us all with World Music Radio.
World Music Radio (WMR) by Jon Batiste is a genreless concept album centered around Billy Bob Bo Bob (aka B4), an interstellar traveling griot connecting the world through an eclectic mix of human frequencies. My creative partner & I had the amazing opportunity to bring Jon’s DJ alter-ego to life—designing the main character archetype for the album’s narrator, crafting his world of retrofuturism & translating B4’s visual story across the entirety of the World Music Radio station + album rollout.
