GUEST,Ian Pittaway Any Oud players? (35) RE: Any Oud players? 11 Oct 06

Penguin Egg, what a strange posting. I've never been really sure what world music is, as it's such a bizarre title for music that just happens to come from somewhere you are not. So your "Death to world music" is death to ALL music: where else is music going to come from? If your location or your tradition habitually plays the oud you're not going to think of it as anything other than your music. So perhaps the misnomer "world music" is just foreignors' music - unless, of course, YOU are the foreignor, in which case, it's not "world music". In a given location, then, the Spice Girls, Planxty or Nic Jones could be your "world music". So if it's "Death to world music" then Mudcat is redundant. Long live the oud!
