    lol. Isn't every music produced ever world music, as it was produced somewhere on this world? Pretty pointless.

    People who say they like "world music" shouldn't be allowed to have a passport.

    surely music from other worlds is still world. [3] I prefer Mars music, myself. [3] ;-) [2]

    this tag is one of the biggest insults ever. i am ashamed that it still predominates in use as indirect and underhanded mockery for the various styles of international folk artists. [2]
