Forums → Popular Media → Doesn't anyone like World Music??
So I've noticed that almost everyone in the forums listens to some form of rock or pop/hip-hop. What about the rest of the world, does anyone listen to music of other places? That's my kind of music, personally. If anyone is interested, I can send some youtube links about good groups...

What do you mean by continental?
OK, look up "taiko medley" on Youtube. It's a drumming style from Japan. Pretty cool, I think.
Yeah, there's a cool group called funk plastic that's worth checking out, I bet they have some videos on Youtube too.
Oh, sweet! I should have looked them up! By the way, if you like the plastic balloon, look up "well hang" on youtube, it's called a hang drum and it's made in Switzerland. Pretty weird...

world music isent good music
its too slo
Well i do listen to some Japanese music.
but akon are a good songer
you meant singer right?? Also I've never heard of "akon".
If it's scandinavian, then it is considered world music, to be fair, so you do like something not produced in America/Canada/England. Good for you!
Also, not all world music is slow. Some New Age-ish stuff like enya is, but other stuff is real fast, too.
Akon is West African, but he sings popular music (aka pop) in America, so I don't think he counts. But he does have a good singing voice...
There is a lot of Japanese music, which kind do you listen to? They have their own version of rock and popular music, all of which is pretty unique, I think...
I would just like to point out that there is, despite topics for several individual rock/pop bands, a thread dedicated to whether or not Pop or Rock is better.... -_- All I have to say is,
expand your musical horizons!
