"The truest expression of a people is in its dances and in its music"

From traditional ethnic music to foreign language pop music, the phrase "World Music" covers a lot of ground. From Reggae to Ragas, Celtic to Klezmer, Salsa to Paris Cafe, world music pretty much encompasses everything that doesn't fit comfortably into an typical 'Top 40' pop chart.

All in all, world music is considered just plain music to the vast majority of people in the world. Music is universal, and to discover the music of a culture is to discover the culture as a whole.

This group is primarily for fans of world music to get together and enjoy concerts, performances and other music-related events in and around London. Musicians / artists / performers are also welcome to promote their work, share resources, etc. via the message board / group profile.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
