Something that's more art than an artifact. I would never casually listen to someone play traditional chinese folk music. I wouldn't really ever listen to any countries traditional folk music.

Just hold the music up to the standards you'd hold north american music up to.

>Apparently no one listens to any of it

>The band members met while enrolled at Columbia University, beginning with a rap collaboration between Koenig and Tomson. They bonded over a shared love of punk rock and African music, and Koenig toured with The Dirty Projectors during a period of experimentation with African music, inspiring the band to incorporate world sounds into their earliest work

yeah no youre just a sheltered suburbanite white boy

Check out the 'rough guide to x' albums on spotify. Has everything from desert blues to gypsy music
>>
A couple African and Middle Eastern albums, some stuff from that lesser Europe, Xenakis, some Russian music, obviously some Indian and maybe some Chinese, some Brazilian and some other South American music, some Iceland, obviously a bunch from the Caribbean (how could you not cross out Jamaica?) and since I'm Canadian, a fair amount of music from there.

I find the problem with a lot of "world" music is it's usually just English music styles played by different nationalities. Like if you want to get into African music, all the most popular stuff is quite similar to music you could get in America or Europe.

Also, there was no point crossing out Australia, they have less musical creativity than many countries you didn't cross out.
>>
14 albums
7 from the Philippines
2 from Egypt/Saudia Arabia
5 from South America

why cross out the entire anglosphere except canada, theres plenty of canadian music

That's the point you fucktard. How dumb can you possibly be? Even those morons bonded over a common love of African music because that's how pleb it is.

>>51446282
>wouldn't really ever listen to any countries traditional folk music.

Then we're done here.
>>
>>51446471
So there's no good modern music being made in these countries? If not we're not done here.

I would listen to classical music made in any of these countries, but folk music just isn't very good. If those sounds were made by a band in portland would you listen to that album? It's cool if you're interested in chinese culture, but that's not what I'm after.

what you qualify as 'modern' music is just western musc

>but folk music just isn't very good

...jesus h christ

>If those sounds were made by a band in portland would you listen to that album?

well this band of white people makes world music influenced by various parts of the world so yes. goat are fairly popular too

>>51446564
What makes me a neanderthal? I think that Chinese shit has value anthropologically but put that shit up against anyone on the /mu/ general and it's a TKO no question. Bar absolutely no one. If that album was added to the /mu/ general it would instantly be the worst album on the list by a wide margin.

Btw, the femi kuti recommendation was pretty good.
>>
>>51446524
It makes me feel like an uncultured swine to say this, but I agree with you. Music has come so far in the last hundred years or so, and traditional music really doesn't hold up for casual listening. I mean, there's something to be said for visiting these countries and seeing the music performed live, but I'd never blast it on my iPod while I'm out walking the dog or whatever.
>>
>>51446613
What sort of music do you consider top-tier? Green Day? Charli XCX? Bachman-Turner Overdrive?

You can't possibly be listening to non-pop music if these are actually your opinions and not just an elaborate ruse.
>>
>>51446625
why wouldn't you listen to something like this for causal listening though (assuming you like folk music)?

Been listening to a lot of Autre Ne Veut and Fly Lo lately, but I mostly listen to rock. Halcyon Digest has been a staple for a long time.

I kind of feel like I'm just not being heard out. That or you people genuinely think gurkin music is great music. I just want to hear good music. I don't care where it comes from.

If I got in a different mindset and I wanted to listen to a different cultures music I could sit down and listen to some of this stuff from a more anthropological mindset and find that gurkin stuff interesting, but if pitchfork BNM'd that gurkin stuff I'd raise an eyebrow or two.

Like this is the oldest song ever known:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBhB9gRnIHE
That's very interesting right? But would you throw this on your ipod and jam out to it? Does that mean you don't appreciate other cultures?
>>
>>51445739
Still a decent number of mehtal bands.
>>
>>51446785
Actually maybe this was a bad example because some of this is actually kind of cool
>>
>>51446785
wtf is gurkin

would there be anything wrong with wanting to do that? i thought it was quite relaxing, personally
>>
>>51446785
I might, I dunno.

Here's some stuff that I definitely would, though.

some good shit there anon

>it would instantly be the worst album on the list by a wide margin.

You are a hell of a pleb if you think that.
>>
>>51446785
I get your point but it all boils down to preference dude, there are plenty of people here who clearly and staunchly disagree.

I think you're missing a bit of the point, too. It's not that the culture is a stamp of quality, it's that we don't often consider non euro-centric music. Maybe a jab at just how dominant the stuff is in the western cultures a good deal of us are likely from.

On the flipside, many of these countries have not experienced the prosperity and the consumer culture that has allowed popular music to develop and thrive in countries X'd out(Canada ought to be one of them because plenty of music comes from there.). And while you may not listen to folk music from elsewhere on the fly, you'll see influences from non-european cultures in the music you and I listen to.

That alone is enough to know that at least some good shit comes out of music from these places.
>>
Well, let's see. Sepultura remains.

Also los redondos:
