Do you buy your "world music" with your latte at a Starbucks after your power yoga practice? Do you think the Putumayo stand at Wholefoods is exotic? Do you think there is a geographical territory...

    I see where this is coming from. I too feel exasperation when the hegemonic Atlanticist/Anglophone culture consumes other music as a part of "ethnic chic" without giving much thought to its context and cultural meanings. You buy Putamayo, you become Putamayo.

    In my opinion traditional cultural music is better of under the "ethnic" tag. The term "world music" could than perfectly be used for all inter-cultural musical exchanges.

    I agree with the fact that the way all non-western music is subsumed under "world music" is discriminatory. As a weird side effect western traditional music is not coined "world" but "folk". Literally the term "world music" means something like "all music made on earth", in which case the term is futile because it includes everyone, except for some lone musician at the international space station...

    Racist? In fact calling some music "world music" and tag it non western is very global and open minded way of understanding music does not exits...

    The group leader says BABYGIRLSHYNE down, but seems very stupid. BUT, it should be abaut Not exotizing and orientalizing the real folk and local musics under the names of, such as World Music. and i really preciate the artist connections here.

    We are anti putamayo type world music cuz it blows. But considering your top artist is Evanescence, I really doubt you will understand what bad music is, much less bad "world" music.

    I don't get the whole point of this group. What's with the "anti". I mean, is it like hate, or just excludes the oriental music, are you against that music? And the profile picture is a belly dancer? I mean, what were they thinking?
