World

"World" (or "World Music") is a controversial classification often used in music marketing to easily discriminate different music from the anglophone genres (and even traditional anglophone Folk genres from more popular styles such as Rock, Pop, Jazz and Electronic music). The term can thus encompass all the music ever created, from traditional African drumming and the extended qawwali singing of Pakistan's Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan through to rock'n'roll from Italy or Brazil.
