    peter gabriel listened to a bit too much pharoah and not enough Miles Davis.

    all the most powerful musics have been outside the world music discourse. the most rhythmically radical music (jungle) owes far more to musics of the world than world music. even peshay's latin jungle only demonstrates a superficial signifier of south american intent. no avid collector.

    hip hop is the most popular music in the world yet when it invokes world music it is only as a sample source. they are more faithful to it than its european record collectors.

    the rare groove blokes were only collecting the popular brazillian jazz funk music to play in their sets. they weren't tourists looking for a mind trip. if it fit it fit. if it didn't it didn't. simples.

    But then at the same time what has Britain historically ever contributed to music. we're all scientists, computer programmers, archeologists, pragmatists, liberals, leftists, wankers indelibly scarred by our class system...

    Even Germany that fount of racism has made huge leaps in music. maybe the world music attitude is less popular over there.

    matty groves is the only banger we've got and it's the fairport convention version. otherwise they suck. only good song they ever did. it might not even be that good actually. let me rush over to spotify.

    Jungle isn't really that rhythmically diverse though it's a bit of an illusion.
