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.

One of my favourite Middle Eastern rhythms and dance styles is BALADI. I've been looking for a good video of the music to share, but I felt like I can't share the music without showing the dance style that goes with it. This dance is sultry and fun, ...

The leader of Ladysmith Black Mombasa, Joseph Shambalala has died. I was very much taken with their acapella singing and the fascinating songs they performed.
