Default Any Worldbeat heads?

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.
Free from the mold, breaking the distance/
A cause to face fears fraught with aching persistence...
