Not sure how much interest you guys have in local traditional music but just thought I'd try a cross-board thread for it, see what people like?

Anyone immerse themselves in local music tradition on the road?

Damn... I'm sorry.

I went on a musical exploration of Central America and the Caribbean lately and found some terrible stuff like that, can't believe people willingly choose to listen to it. Oh and Soca, just why?

Check out sahelsounds on bandcamp. Music from Saharan Cell Phones.

I'm a big time mufag and I always try to listen to a few albums of the regional folk and/or popular music when I go somewhere abroad that's non-western. Of course, when you get there, you hear just as much Katy Perry and 1D as are back in the states/western europe. I still do it though, because I like listening to music. Maybe when I go to Qatar someone else there will have actually listened to traditional arabic pop and we can mutually bond over music no one else listens to.

I always enjoy listening to local music. But you know, even in less developed countries like India and Georgia and Bosnia/Herzegovina, people tend not to less to "traditional" music. Rather, they have popular spins on older compositions or their own varieties of musical genres that are popular all over the world. Music definitely has a more old-timey feel in Eastern Europe and the Middle-East than in the West, but it's not what I'd call traditional, either.

Here are a few musical pieces I've enjoyed abroad, from various countries:

Turkey:

> this is actually Ukrainian and is featured in GTA IV... but they were playing it in a Serbian dance club and I liked it a lot

Yeah, I know the lyrics for songs like "Yatcaz Kalkcaz" suck in Turkish. And these aren't all the songs I've enjoyed - for example, most of the tracks I listed from India are from popular movies.

Soca nowadays is pretty repetitive and identical and hard to listen to, and the name has sorta lost meaning. Check out stuff from the 60s and earlier, it's pretty nice.

Here's some traditional mento (which is Jamaican, not Trini)

In Istanbul drinking is often accompanied by live bands playing Turkish music. I'm not versed enough in the form to judge whether what I saw was especially good Turkish music, but I enjoyed it and always prefer to sit in a bar with a band than one without.

In Thailand I saw a lot of good cover artists, but it was mainly just Western shit.

Does anyone know of any good chinese music? A lot of the pop is absolutely horrible. I don't care if it's incredibly traditional just as long as it sounds good, good quality. Bonus point if it's jazz within the past 10 years and no words.

You can hear a lot about a culture just from the sounds of the instruments and how they play.

That Prince Royce song is still played every 15 minutes? I was in Cuba 15 months ago and I heard it every-fucking-where all the time.

Here's a random sampling of tracks I've come across while traveling or living abroad; mostly more pop than traditional, but in very local styles:
http://youtu.be/42J6SALURhM -- this one was all over the TV and radio when I was in Moldova; it is evidently embarrassing redneck gypsy music from Romania. I like the middle eastern color.
http://youtu.be/7E7acsJAbuI
http://youtu.be/7U6ov-DaBo0
Two hits from Bishnu Majhi, my favorite Nepali lok geet singer. The second was a big hit when I was last there. Lok Geet is evidently a pop version of a traditional form of festival folk singing.
http://youtu.be/piTpr0Y2Y0I
A live track from Caravan, my favorite Thai band; they were huge for political folk-rock protest songs during the tumultuous 1970s and spent a few years hiding in the mountains with communist insurgents after military dictators cracked down in 1976. I like this one because it showcases both their obvious debt to US/UK folk and rock styles of the 60s and some indigenous Thai/Lao instruments and structures. This is sung in Thai with an exaggerated attempt at a Lao/Northeastern Thai accent, and is about how GIs from the bases in Udon abused locals during the war in Vietnam.
