World music is many different styles of non-western music from around the globe. The idea of World Music became popular in the 1980s as a marketing category for non-Western traditional music. There are innumerable styles but some of the most well know are Afrobeat - a combination of traditional Nigerian music, jazz, funk, and chanted vocals fused with percussion and vocal styles and Worldbeat - a genre that blends Western pop or rock music with traditional, folk or world music influences.
There's more to popular music than what comes from the English speaking world.

You might like Afrobeat or Indipop, Celtic Folk or Zydeco, Cajun, Korean or Japanese pop. World music is 'local music from out there' so why not go out and discover someone else's local?
