40 World Music Artists From green Global Travel’s 1st Year

 

Long before I had the means to travel around the world, my love of world music artists provided me with an opportunity to explore other cultures. As a Music Business major/Music Theory minor in college, I began to get into the music of Jamaica, South Africa, Pakistan and Scotland. As my understanding of music grew, so did my interest. By the time I’d reached my mid-20s I was writing a world music column called “A Different Drum” (whose title was inspired by a song from Peter Gabriel‘s soundtrack for The Last Temptation Of Christ), which led to opportunities to contribute to several books on world music.

 

Once I was able to travel, I began to immerse myself even more in this passion, collecting musical instruments from all over the world. I sang with Zulus in South Africa, hung out with bagpipe buskers on the streets of Edinburgh, met Peter Tosh‘s mother in Jamaica, played drums with a band in the Dominican Republic, and basically tried to learn as much as I could about the indigenous culture of every place I visited. To me, music is the true voice of a people, and a passport to understanding its culture.

Exposing our readers to the music we love has always been an essential part of our mission, and over our first year of existence we wrote more than 40 cultural essays about amazing artists from all over the world. As you’ll see from the links below, we’ve covered artists from every continent except Antarctica, spanning nearly every genre you can imagine. And this, my friends, is just a drop in the bucket. We eventually hope to have one of the most thorough catalogues of world music artists of any site on the web. Hope you’ll join us, and take a musical trip around the world!   –Bret Love
