Tomar el té en la India, un whisky en el desierto, fumar algo en Jamaica, comer ostras en Bretaña, perderte en Granada, montar a caballo en Mongolia, jugar a la play en Japón, volver a fumar algo en Marruecos,hacer el amor en la selva africana, perderte en la sabana, tomarte una pinta en Irlanda, mascar coca en Perú, invitar a tu pareja a un roncito en Cuba, volver a Jamaica …. Y todo sin salir de casa con esta lista que no es de una agencia de viajes.
AFRICAN MUSIC. Centrada fundamentalmente en el África negra, la lista recorre sonidos llenos de ritmo, ternura, espiritualidad y, como no, reivindicación política. Canciones del gran Fela Kuti, Tony Allen, Malatu Astatke, el afro-beat, los sonidos de Etiopía, etc. A spotify list: http://playlistspotify.wordpress.com/2014/02/02/african-music/
Bienvenue dans le vaste univers musical de CERISE FM. Online Broadcast from 17h from Monday to Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12h (French time) . 20h-03h special ethno world Music program.
But I do like the current description for this tag: "'World' (or “World Music”) is a controversial classification often used in music marketing to easily discriminate different music from the anglophone genres (and even traditional anglophone Folk genres from more popular styles such as Rock, Pop, Jazz and Electronic music)."
v Agreed. I hate the use of this tag and I hate that my local music store has a "world" section in which they stick any album they're not sure how to classify. I once asked an employee there why I found music by lesser known central american artists in the "world" section but Shakira is in the regular rock/pop section. It makes no sense!
A lot of people are discrediting the tag 'World Music' but I don't think it is such a bad idea! I have recently started a digital World Music & Culture Magazine. TETO (To Each Their Own) Music aims to go beyond the standard concepts of music magazines by getting rid of the usual labels associated to music and its genre. This will be accomplished by splitting the articles by continent and having artists categorised geographically rather than by genre in order to highlight the cultural context of the music in question. Check out the links below to have a read about some of the pioneers associated to countries around the World. www.tetomusic.co.uk
This tag is so annoying! I try to listen to music from a particular part of the world, and it plays music from all over the world. I mean, we are all one, but there are some serious cultural and musical differences. Let us revel in the uniqueness!!!
