“World” not “World”

These genres are sometimes called “world music” when in compilations. The term bugs me because it doesn’t actually encompass the whole world. Besides, everything is “world music…” I hear similarities in these pieces that make me want to know more about the development of folk / pop music from the African continent and the Middle Eastern regions. If anyone has music-history information please contact me! As usual I threw in some random tunes. Enjoy!
