Michael S Definition of World Music (35) RE: Definition of World Music 09 Dec 08

I think the label execs were quite resourceful. While the phrase "world music" might be confusing to a degree, it's been a spectacularly successful approach overall. It's helped people discover much music that might have otherwise escaped notice. And god knows, "folk," "country," and "blues" can be can be confusing terms as well, especially around the margins.
