World Music

A group to share great music with others of any type from around the world, and of any language, and taste. Everyone is welcome to join! Just keep in mind that there are other music groups in which you can post well known artists and songs which are in the mainstream US/UK music market. This group should be reserved for a more eclectic, international type of music.

Youtube Can’t keep away from Italian singers for too long...also my Scandi choices don’t seem to appeal to the rest of you in the way they draw me to them...so here we are with Andrea Bocelli and Mi Manchi (performed live in Las Vegas).
