WORLD MUSIC CONCERTS: Tour, Schedule, Tickets and more...


World music might sound like an impossible musical genre to define. There are around 8 billion people in the world today from 195 countries. How can one genre encompass them all? To learn more about this seemingly catch-all genre, who should listen to it, and why concerts are key, keep reading...

According to musical experts at Kent State, “music and musicians have often consisted of a complex blend of different identities and cultures.” What is described today as popular music has primarily included North American and European music. Although North American and European musicians have been inspired by non-Western music’s beats, melodies and techniques, the mainstream music industry did not recognize this relationship until the last few decades, around the 80s. Still, since then, there have been barriers in identifying and labeling these other world influences effectively. Because of this, “world music” became an umbrella genre to fit the eclectic sounds from different parts of the world cultures, often with a danceable rhythm.

World music is a great genre for people who like something diverse and unusual. New—to the listener-- instruments, rhythmic structures, languages and tonalities can be a mind-opening and immersive way to learn about a culture and appreciate the scope of music accessible today. Because experiencing new music is a type of educational experience, it is fantastic option for people of all ages. For people who like to frequent museums and cultural centers with a group of people, such as the family or friend group, world music can be an awesome expansion on that. What better way to learn about Sweden or Lebanon or Japan than to hear their arts?

Concerts are integral to the world music experience because that is how music has been for most of human history. Before music was written, before music was recorded, it was a shared, communal art used in festivals, celebrations and ceremonies. Today, music is used in many of those same ways around the world. In this way, concerts reach back to one of the most longstanding ways to communicate, express and understand the world around us.

When thinking about concerts, it can be challenging to seek out world music without straying far from home. It is—by definition—derived from someplace else. That is why having a conveniently compiled and easily searchable place to find concerts near you is wonderful. Regularly, traditional world music groups go on tour. Zimbabwe guitar bands, Qawwali Pakistani Sufi singers are two examples of this. But world music is so much more than that. In practically every country, creatives continue to make new music every day, from Swedish techno to K-pop. To learn more about all of the world music coming to your area soon and purchase your tickets, look no further.
