A basic actual definition of world music consists of “all the music in the world”, which effectively renders the term virtually meaningless beyond marketing purposes. The term also is taken erroneously as a classification of music that combines western popular music styles with one or many genres of non-Western music that were previously described as folk music or ethnic music, however, the correct term for this style is worldbeat (or world fusion).
