World and Cultural ARTISTS

World and ethnic music are not defined by or confined to when non-Western music and sounds were discovered by the playlists of the Western world, and yet the name suggests ‘other’ than Western music. Our world is vast and, despite the big names and labels calling our attention here or there, there’s a whole lot more out there for us to hear, share, experience, and learn from. So for all the world-this and fusion-thats, the world genre here is any music that musicians who were not raised exclusively on a Western sound bring from their souls, from their communities, from their traditions, and sometimes from striking a rapport with others whose music has a rhythmic familiarity, or a vocal harmony, or maybe a lyric dissonance that sparks a compositional conversation across whatever continent, instrument, cable, table, or bar those musicians are conversing.
