I'm not usually massive world music fan, but between Joe Boyd's enthusiasm and being on here constantly of late...kind of digging it. opens yer head to all kinds of things

I'm going to see Tinariwen in April!
Avatar Sat. 2/22/14 6:41pm SSS:

Think about it, the "other" can always be described as ethnic by any "other", but it seems only some think this way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/22/14 6:42pm Rob W:

Thanks everyone! As for the "other" - well, a great example to me that I remember hearing that in Germany, at least a while back, record shops would file American country music under "world music".
Avatar Sat. 2/22/14 6:43pm Whooda:

Hey there DJ Stashu, that's a noble looking nose you have up for adoption. If still available, my marathon budget will only allow for one nostril. :( Maybe I can find a co-investor?
Avatar Sat. 2/22/14 6:43pm SSS:

It is so nice to be understood
  Sat. 2/22/14 6:43pm LovecraftDude888:

ha, Johnny Cash world music. cool! Nah I don't label things this way, really....I"m just as good hearing Sufi qawwali or New York Dolls, whatever
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/22/14 6:44pm Rob W:

I actually interviewed Joe Boyd for my show a few years ago, when he was promoting White Bicycles. (Archive: Actually at the time he mentioned he was going to write a follow-up about his career in 'world music' - did he ever - ?
Avatar Sat. 2/22/14 6:45pm Whooda:

American Country music as "world music". As any fan of American Country music would reply, "Was there some question about it?"
  Sat. 2/22/14 6:46pm LovecraftDude888:

Rob...I met Joe last year at Nick Drake film event in Brooklyn at Nite Hawk...and he says on blog and here that he's working on his book on world music etc...yep.
  Sat. 2/22/14 6:47pm LovecraftDude888:

I meant the event and on his blog sorry
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/22/14 6:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Country has roots in Scottish Ballads, for example - 'Wildwood Flower' & all this; I'm fascinated by how in the isolated Hills of the (American) South - African & European Traditions were sometimes preserved w/ remarkably little change from the Eastern Hemisphere
...soo - Country & Jazz & Rawk are World Fusions from the everybody knows - but I like to hear myself talk
- & Hi !! Great As Ever Rob !
Avatar Sat. 2/22/14 6:56pm Whooda:

Those are some great observations RevRabbit. So true. Hope your're not too foggy, what with all the cold medicine and all.

Normally a 'rat tail' in a cake is headed to a prisoner in the form of a 'rat tail file'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/22/14 7:00pm Ike:

Sounds good! ...except for the supersonic hamster wheel of the 91.1 backup transmitter. I'll switch that off & listen online instead.

...take Gershwin: you have Classical, Blues~Jazz~Gospel - maybe even some Eastern European in there - & it's a natural Fusion for him - not some attempt to join things together for the sake of it - but because that was his Environment where & when he was from...

Ooh man, that Kinan Azmeh track was great. Hallo Rob!

Awesome, Ike. Bread is something I haven't attempted since H.S. A lot of chemistry there. I was hoping to get in on a Sunday, but lunch shifts were spoken for
