What is World Music? Does The Name Work Anymore?

As a Rhode Island DJ with a diverse, Multicultural DJ Music library, I get asked often to play “World Music”. Of course, I know what the person requesting World Music wants to hear most of the time but the name World Music may not be applicable or respectful anymore. Let’s take a look at the roots of the genre World Music and if it is something that needs to change in a multicultural world like we haver today; Uganda, Mumbai, Turkey and Tibet do not feel like foreign, “exotic” nations as they did before the internet and You Tube took hold of the world do they?

What Is World Music?

I wish I had a dollar for every time I am asked “What is World Music?”. It is probably my most frequently asked question.

To a lot of people I know, the term “World Music” conjures up images of men in loincloths, banging on clay gourds in Africa. Or something like that. A style of music that is particular to a specific, usually non-Western culture.

And to an extent, they are right. World Music is, to over-simplify, music from around the world. Sounds that reflect a particular culture through the use of geographically-specific musical structure, instruments, and in some cases, lyrics that also reflect a cultural or social reality.

 

In some cases, World Music an be as simple as pop music with lyrics in a language other than English. What does the linguistic approach Francis Cabrel takes — his pronunciation, his turns of phrases — say about the French language? What does his style reflect about the development of the French chanson since the early part of this century?

 

Or, most commonly assumed, World Music can be a musical style completely rooted in a culture apart from our own respective ones. To me, someone who has grown up in white, middle class Canada, Native American music opens the doors to a rich social and musical history — even though many of the performers, like Buffy Sainte-Marie and Robbie Robertson, are from the same country as I. And when the music is performed by an artist completely outside the Western realm, someone like Youssou N’Dour, it is practically impossible to separate the perfomer from the culture he or she comes from.

World Music DJ  Review by Multicultural Rhode Island Wedding DJ

Sometimes musical styles and cultures start to mix. This is when things get interesting. In general, music utilizing a wide range of cultural instruments and styles is called World Fusion or World Beat. Peter Gabriel made World Beat a household term when he founded Real World Records, a label that supports and distributes the work of many World artists. It really doesn’t matter where an artist is from or what his or her background is — if a performer uses different ethnic influences that are obvious in the sound of the finished work, that’s World Music.

What Is World Music?

ABSTRACT:  World Music is the currently popular alternative for terms such as primitive, non-Western, ethnic and folk music.  It has come to the forefront by its use in commercial and academic circles.  With the growth of worldwide systems of communication and commerce, music librarians will feel increasing demands for materials characterized as world music.

 

            World music means different things to different people, making it difficult to define.  One thing is certain–we see more of it coming into our music libraries every day and “we know it when we hear it!”

World music might best be described by what it is not.  It is not Western art music, neither is it mainstream Western folk or popular music.  World music canbe traditional (folk), popular or even art music, but it must have ethnic or foreign elements.  It is simply not our music, it is their music, music which belongs to someone else.

A review of the literature shows that “world music” is a relatively recent term, and one appearing in ever wider contexts.  Only since 1989 has the Music Index given a cross reference for the term, one which directs us to see “ethnic music,” “folk music”, and “popular music–styles”.  This seems to imply that world music is a large category, which encompasses ethnic music, folk music, and certain popular styles with non-Western elements.  The fact that the term only gets a cross-reference suggests that Music Index has not yet fully accepted it as a subject.  The Library of Congress Subject Headings do not use the term at all.  What, then, is world music?

The term ‘world music’ is outdated and offensive

Its original intention was to help promote non-western musicians. But now it is just putting them in a ghetto• Ian Birrell will be taking part in a Guardian Open Weekend session on Sunday 25 March, discussing music’s global revolutions with Fatoumata Diawara, Ian Anderson, Johan Hugo and DJ Abrantee.

It is 25 years since the concept of world music was created by enthusiasts in a north London pub. Perhaps it made sense then, as a marketing device to promote the sounds of the world that were lost in record shops and on the radio. But not now. Not in this mixed-up, messy and shrunken world. It feels like an outdated and increasingly offensive term.

For a start, it implies cultural superiority. Artists from America and Europe tend not to get stuck in the world section, just those that don’t speak English or come from “exotic” parts of the world. They can be consigned safely to the world music ghetto, ignored by the mainstream and drooled over by those who approach music as an offshoot of anthropology.

Of course, even Fela Kuti made music that owed as much to America as to his native Nigeria. But how does this label make any sense now, when you have western bands such as Tuneyards relying on African grooves while artists such as D’Banj and Buraka Som Sistema destroy the concept with each track they release? Or when you hear samples from all over the world in clubs?

Or indeed, when a very British singer and a bassist from one of America’s biggest rock bands join forces with Fela’s drummer and singers from Mali and Ghana, as on Damon Albarn‘s latest project Rocketjuice and the Moon? This band emerged from Africa Express, an organisation I helped to found seven years ago to break down the ghetto walls. Among those joining Albarn, Flea and Tony Allen on the album is M.anifest, a Ghanaian rapper who lives in Minnesota and often performs with M3nsa, a fellow countryman who lives in north London, with a British teacher as their DJ.

Should this be filed under world music? The Guardian

World Music, The Genre Dear America, you are doing it wrong!

US music industry is the most matured industry as I understand, but juvenile when it comes to classifying music. The American nomenclature of musical genre is what I have been constantly struggling to grasp. Basically, the system address all aspects, Explores the music and their roots, period, flavor etc, in every possible direction. But whenever I encounter a situation where I need a chose a genre for my music, it is not an easy job, if not impossible.Earlier, I started to select World as my genre for Indian flavor music. And.. yeah! its International at times. But I am yet to understand the difference between a World Beat and Fusion. I wanted to make it asInstrumental for convenience. But that doesn’t seem to work.A common man from East is unlikely to understand ‘Classical’ as ‘Western Classical’, ‘Fusion’ as ‘Jazz Fusion’, for examples. Because, every country, especially countries like India, has great heritage of music and ‘Classical Music’ would always mean something to them.

When I read a page from All Music saying ‘Blues is about traditional and personal expression’, I wondered myself. “Oh! Blues is about personal expression too, like Rock”. I know this is funny. And so the definition too. And, I never find it reasonable when I read something like ‘… generally a three chord progression…’

Every country has Classical, Easy Listening, Children, Holiday, Folk and Film Score. For me, the most obscure genre is Bollywood and I never understood it technically.

The genre ‘Ethnic Jazz’ is an American perception of an exotic style. It has doesn’t give a clue about to a non American. The entire system sees music as American and WorldThe problem is, music doesn’t fit in such clear-cut suites. Its a fun that my recent release is named under different genres on different portals. At least, an artist from West should be able to say what he or she produces. They may abhor saying “I make world music”.  Gokul Salvadi

How to define the broad genre of world music

By Alex Case-Cohen

The month of October brought a cultural twist to Ambient Transience.  I dedicated three shows to various factions of “world” music.  To me, the term is vague and somewhat offensive; in general, it signifies musical themes from non-western cultures, eliciting sounds distinct from what we would typically hear in the West.  World music is infinitely broad; its strange to me that Chinese folk music can be considered in the same genre as African Mbira music, but so is the Western process of definition and categorization. Granted, each show possessed only a small taste of each culturally distinct genre, and it was necessary for me to lump together regions and ethnicities that are completely opposite to each other. I chose an Asian theme for my first show in October; the majority of the music came from Japan with such influential ambient artists as Tetsu Inoue with Ambient Otaku, and Yukari fresh.  Some Chinese choices included Monolake, Liu Fang; Chinese ambient draws on traditional Folk music while incorporating contemporary trends in electronic sounds. The following show brought songs from Africa. Again, my two-hour time slot did not allow for an extreme clarification of the various genres existing in the diverse continent.  From northern Africa came distinct Islamic influences, for the region is dominated by the religion; Orchestre Du Jardin Du Guinee and Ali Farka Toure exhibit stylistic tendencies out of MENA (Middle East and North Africa).  Mbira, out of Nigeria and Kenya, utilizes the finger piano to create distinctive rhythm in the music.  Thomas Mapfumo and Toto Bona Lakua are among the many that represent this musical variety. The following week brought music from my favorite region: Latin America.  Both Central and South America incorporate a vast array of people, cultures, languages, and musical types.  I used indigenous folk songs from Atahualpa Yupanqui with incredible wind instruments, and looked at the Brazilian band Os Mutantes which greatly influenced the American Progressive Rock movement.  Another theme I touched on was Nueva Cancion where various musicians produced songs of peaceful protest against the tyrannical regimes of the 1960s and 1970s. Although I’ve never set foot in Asia, Africa or South America, researching the musical genres from these regions has greatly intrigued me.  One day, I hope to explore such diverse and interesting regions in order to create my own definition of “World” music.

Girls Gone Vinyl: The Untold Story of Female DJs

I came across this important project earlier today and wanted to share it with you in hopes of gaining some support and momentum for the producers. I think Girls Gone Vinyl is something we have needed for a while and hope they can get their message out there to inspire young women to DJ and acknowledge those that have been female DJs for years unnoticed. And I love the name; Girls Gone Vinyl!

Girls Gone Vinyl: The Untold Story of Female DJs - Rhode Island Wedding DJ

Girls Gone Vinyl: The Untold Story of Female DJs - Rhode Island Wedding DJ

 

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

A film about the true story of female DJs from around the world in a male dominated industry. No one would think that the electronic music industry is in conflict, but the truth is that DJs are more segregated that politicians or business executives.

Girls Gone Vinyl is the world’s first documentary about female DJs, their struggles and successes, what inspires them and what drives them in spite of overwhelming odds. Watch these women converge on Detroit for the largest electronic music festival in North America and hear their stories firsthand.

Girls Gone Vinyl: The Untold Story of Female DJs - Rhode island Wedding DJ

THE PLAN

Preproduction will begin immediately. Shooting will commence promptly at the start of the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit which takes place May 28 to 30, 2011. To learn more about the festival please visit their site http://www.movement.us/

Out of 107 acts at the festival there are 6 female DJs preforming. We will be interviewing and filming their performances at the festival itself and numerous afterparties taking place during the weekend.

We will also be hosting our own all female DJ line up event during the festival on Sunday May 29th.

WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?We’re producing, directing, shooting, and editing the film. By day, Jenny Lafemme is a video and film producer for Parliament Studios, who will handle film production and post-production. Funding for this project goes toward flight costs for DJs to interview, travel for shooting, camera equipment needed to produce beautiful footage, and marketing and PR costs. The movie will be shot digitally to reduce cost and speed up production. All people working on the film will be donating their time and talent to bring this story to life.

Please share and pass on the news of the Girls Gone Vinyl: The Untold Story of Female DJs project. I have always hired and promoted female DJs for my business as a Rhode Island DJ but know that I am in the minority. I have trained several women to become female DJs and find they are often better students and more serious about their work then young men who seem more interested in image ands sex than substance and skills.

How did I become a Rhode Island Multicultural DJ? Being raised in the New Jersey/New York City area, I was put in many situations that forced me to recognize that not everybody or every family lived life the way I did. I can remember walking down the streets of Manhattan as an adolescent and being amazed that it felt like there was a representative from every country in the world also walking down the same streets as me. Of course, this was not true but It helped me understand that the world was made of all kinds of different and similar people.  This is how I eventually became a Rhode Island Multicultural DJ.

I have had the opportunity to work with people from all over the world, The United States and a diverse a mix of race, culture, class, gender and religion, as well as socio-economic class as one can imagine.

Rhode Island Multicultural DJ and Multiculturalism

Multiculturalism relates to communities containing multiple cultures. The term is used in two broad ways, either descriptively or normatively. As a descriptive term, it usually refers to the simple fact of cultural diversity: it is generally applied to the demographic make-up of a specific place, sometime at the organizational level, e.g. schoolsbusinessesneighborhoodscities, or nations.

Fun Rhode Island Multicultural DJ & Fun Rhode Island Multicultural Wedding DJ

As a normative term, it refers to ideologies or policies that promote this diversity or its institutionalization; in this sense, multiculturalism is a society “at ease with the rich tapestry of human life and the desire amongst people to express their own identity in the manner they see fit.” Such ideologies or policies vary widely, including country to country, ranging from the advocacy of equal respect to the various cultures in a society, to a policy of promoting the maintenance of cultural diversity, to policies in which people of various ethnic and religious groups are addressed by the authorities as defined by the group they belong to. However, two main different and seemingly inconsistent strategies have developed through different Government policies and strategies: The first focuses on interaction and communication between different cultures. Interactions of cultures provide opportunities for the cultural differences to communicate and interact to create multiculturalism. This approach is also often known as interculturalism. The second centers on diversity and cultural uniqueness. Cultural isolation can protect the uniqueness of the local culture of a nation or area and also contribute to global cultural diversity. A common aspect of many policies following the second approach is that they avoid presenting any specific ethnic, religious, or cultural community values as central.

Fun Rhode Island Multicultural DJ & Fun Rhode Island Multicultural Wedding DJ

Multiculturalism is often contrasted with the concepts of assimilationism and has been described as a “salad bowl” or “cultural mosaic” rather than a “melting potWikipedia

All weddings are awesome — not just mine | Offbeat Bride

As I have mentioned before, I love Offbeat Bride! I think they are amazing and do a great job of offering Brides diverse and creative ideas, concepts and perspectives on Weddings and everything that goes into your Wedding. The Wedding industry can sometimes be embarrassment to be a participant in the process. There are many vendors, venues and Wedding DJs that lie, cheat and manipulate Brides and Grooms. They play on their insecurities and fears to buy buy buy. I realize it is corny, but I love Weddings. The whole process is fun and inspiring to me. Like the article below states; all Weddings are awesome. It does not matter how much you spend or don’t, they are great experiences and celebrate marriage. I am equally thrilled when a Bride tells me she hired another Wedding DJ thats is perfect for her. I am not worried about getting  booked, many Brides and many Weddings. The fact that I am a small business that survives off of Weddings does not matter to me. I will get work. I want you to be happy and have a great Wedding that you, your friends and family will always remember. I am not the only excellent Wedding DJ and I am not the right Wedding DJ for every Bride and Groom. Let me know what you think about this piece on Brides and Weddings from Offbeat Bride.

All weddings are awesome — not just mine | Offbeat Bride

“I am confused.

I am confused by the attitude that surrounds weddings and costs and ideas and things. Maybe that’s what makes me offbeat — I have this habit of loving everyone and being insanely optimisic even when it’s probably not warranted. I give second chances. I love and trust until given reason not to. Every new person I meet, and can carry at least a five minute conversation, I say is my new best friend. I write a daily blog about something happy that happened to me that day.

My problem lies in all the intense bitchiness that lives in the wedding world. “My wedding is better than yours because of such-and-such” and all of the things that go into such a feeling.

I was reading a blog where a woman commented that she had a courtroom wedding and blames opulent weddings for the high divorce rate.

Then there are the haters on both sides of the world. My wedding (and marriage) are better than yours because I chose to have a BBQ instead of a five course sit down meal. [At Offbeat Bride, we call this “one-lowsmanship” -Eds] My wedding (and marriage) are better than yours because I paid for three party rooms and the ghost of Louis Armstrong to sing our first song.

Can we all just chill the fuck out and be nice to each other for like… five and a half seconds?

If I was rich, I can’t say that I wouldn’t spend $50,000 on a wedding. I’d like to say I wouldn’t, but ideas change when disposable income does. My beautiful made of honor will be in our less-than-$10,000 celebration and was recently the maid of honor at a $50,000 celebration. They did the whole spiel: Catholic mass ceremony in a church with friends, family, family friends, parent’s business friends, people they’ve never known, country club, five course sit-down meal, uplighting, etc., etc. And you know what?

That wedding? … Absolutely beautiful.

The couple has been together for nearly ten years, and they earned every second of that celebration. Just because they did things differently than me doesn’t make them any better or worse. It’s just different.

We’re all awesome, beautiful, wonderful brides planning celebrations. We’re not all that different — we’re just throwing different parties.

The wedding industrial complex that tells us we need to lose weight, invite people we hate, and buybuybuybuybuy is slightly evil, yes. But it’s not all evil, and the women who don’t read Offbeat Bride are brides too. We all are. We’re all awesome, beautiful, wonderful brides planning celebrations. There are bad apples in every bunch but mostly, we’re not all that different — we’re just throwing different parties.

So I guess my issue is that everyone on every spectrum needs to realize that we can all get along. I promise. We really can. I love your wedding. Whoever you are. I love it. Whether it had all the bells and whistles or was private vows at the top of a mountain. Whether it had a DJ or an iPod. Whether it cost $200 or $200,000. It’s one of most beautiful days in the history of ever. We don’t need to be subtracting from other people’s celebrations to help make ourselves feel better. We can appreciate everything even if it’s nothing we would ever do in a million years.

The girl with the big poofy dress, the fancy dinner, the expensive wine, the 14 bridesmaids? That’s not me. But you know what? Her wedding is going to kick just as much ass as mine will because that’s her celebration. If you can stand in that ceremony and say that the person across from you is the person that you’re supposed to be across from on your wedding day — then nothing else matters.”

What Is A Rhode Island Multicultural DJ?

I get asked from time to time, “Michael, what is a Rhode Island Multicultural DJ?” And this is the conversation that typically follows.

I smile and reply, “A Rhode Island Multicultural DJ is a professional DJ that is well-versed in the many cultures and traditions that a diverse area like Rhode Island demands for great Weddings, parties and Events.”

Fun Dancing at Wedding with New Jersey Multicultural DJ

“Yeah, that sounds great but what does that mean in real life for me hiring a good Wedding DJ for me and my fiancé for our Wedding? We are from two different cultures and want our families and friends to have a great time and fit together well.”

That is exactly what a good Multicultural DJ does!

“A good Multicultural DJ has a vast library across many cultures and genres to meet the needs of a diverse population like yours. We are very comfortable with both taking direction and guidance from you as to what your cultural traditions and music demand, and taking over when you need someone to make sure everything goes exactly the way you wanted it. In short, a good Multicultural DJ is ready for whatever happens at your Wedding. That is what a good Rhode Island Multicultural DJ is. Make sense?”

Fun Dancing at Wedding with New Jersey Multicultural DJ

“Yes, I think I get it now. You are saying that a good Multicultural DJ knows a lot about different cultures and is confident enough to let their ego get in the way of me teaching the about my culture for my Wedding. Do I have it correct?”

“Yes, I should hire you to be my marketing guru!”

We both laugh and start talking about the details of their Rhode Island Multicultural Wedding and cultural traditions…
