World Music at Yadara

World music is a term that best describes musical styles coming from countries outside of the Western world. Undefinable in one single meaning, world music includes anything from traditional and intercultural to quasi-traditional sounds. One way to understand the focus on culturally exotic noises would be through Roots magazine's descriptor of the genre as "local music from out there." While world music's exact definition is debated, the genre typically encapsulates various subgenres including African music, Asian music, Latin American music, indigenous music, Middle Eastern music, and Celtic music. World music is sometimes used interchangeably with the terms global pop or worldbeat. However, Global Pop emphasizes hybridization and fusion while Worldbeat specifically focuses on cultural exchange and cross-pollination.

The term "world music" was first used professionally by British radio DJ Roger George Clark in the late 1970s. He used it to describe foreign artists, including African musicians, who were beginning to gain popularity in the UK. The genre gained mainstream traction in the 1980s with the release of The World Is a Ghetto by War and Graceland by Paul Simon. In the 1990s and 2000s, world music continued to grow in popularity with releases such as Buena Vista Social Club by Ry Cooder and the Afro Celt Sound System. With the increased accessibility of global sounds, the world music genre has begun to overlap and merge with other genres including electronic dance music  (EDM), hip-hop, and pop. As a result, the line between world music and other genres has become increasingly blurred.

To better define the genre, the World Music Expo (WOMEX) was founded in 1994. WOMEX is a yearly international world music conference and festival that takes place in different cities around the world. The event includes showcases, panel discussions, and networking opportunities for artists, labels, and industry professionals. Despite its challenges in definition, world music continues to be a popular genre with both listeners and performers. The genre has something to offer everyone, making it an important part of the musical landscape.
