I recently did an interview with a Greek musician James Basdanis, who describes his musical genre as “ world music” which got me thinking, what exactly is the sound and style of today’s “ world music”. I hadn’t heard the term in a while. His incredible upcoming debut album( which I am lucky to have heard already) fuses Eastern influences with rock guitar and bass, which is surely a progression from the cd’s I used to find on the world music rack at Virgin or Sam Goody back in the day. So how do we definite today’s ‘world music’ genre and where does it go from here?
