So called "World" music has bored me to tears more often than not. Especially the kind featuring plaintive voices backed with acoustic instruments in weird rhythm patterns that I cant relate to. Just like most Jazz. BOOOOOOOOOOORing.
My favorite non reggae styles are Bob Dylan, Fela, King Sunny Ade, Franco, Rochereau, Kassav, early 80's boogie funk, some hip hop.
