here's where to start, western pop purists

Mike Troubled Diva's Rough Guide to World Music MP3 is up and available to download. mExcellent - Go get it.

Mike, who is normally pretty quiet on the subject, says:

"reading about "world" music is not only beside the point - but, well, a little bit boring, like a coursework assignment. Better by far to sidestep all the fascinating facts, all the "Is it representative?", "Am I being marketed to?" head-f**ks, all the cultural tourism baggage...

...and just enjoy the music. Which I do, constantly."

Now we can too. Here's his post; part one of the guide is up now.
