    World Fusion Music

    I love the way that music bears the imprint of whatever part of the world it comes from - of whatever part of a continent it comes from - of whatever part of a smallish landmass (e.g. the UK) it comes from.

    And I love the way that different cultures can be fused together to a delicious blend, like a new flavour discovered accidentally in cooking.

    This is the thread to post cultural crossover or 'World Fusion Music'.

    !965 saw one of the first really popular examples of world fusion music brought out on disc - the Missa Luba, an African setting (from the then 'Belgian Congo') of the Catholic Latin Mass.

    Here's the Credo - just lovely!

    Of course, it was the Missa Luba Sanctus that was an unexpected 'hit' in the 1960s.
    And no wonder - it is sublime.

    Missa Luba - the Kyrie. It's wonderful.

    And just to balance, here's some Japanese-influenced music for a Catholic liturgy.

    This mass setting, which uses South American themes and instruments, is gorgeous.

    A great example of world fusion music from Africa. 'Them Mushrooms' is the title.



    It really lifts the spirits.

    Gorgeous - oriental music with a beat. Thai fusion.

    From the video:
    AkashA, the all Malaysian band that took the Rainforest World Music Festival 2008 by storm, presents a compilation of diverse music genres, woven together with a magical thread of ethnic acoustic instruments from around the globe.


    I'm not sure they haven't tried to do too much here - too many genres, despite their obvious talent.
