Just to be clear on what I'm talking about:

"In popular music, worldbeat refers to any style of music which fuses folk music from non-traditional sources (essentially, outside the Appalachian folk and Celtic traditions) with Western rock or other pop influences." - From Wikipedia

I usually think of worldbeat as a fusion consisting of let's say 'ethnic' music (for lack of a better word) and electronic accompaniment - usually heavy on the bass and drums.

Anyway, I love this shit - can't get enough. I have a few outstanding albums, my favourite of which is probably a compilation called Arabesque. I also have albums from Christophe Goze, compilations called World Beats, Buddha Beats, and some other shit...

I'll up some tracks later.

Welcome back by the way - this is the first I've seen of you since the site went down. I remember our battles back in the day, haha.
