"The term World Music has immensely benefited classical and folk musicians across the world. But most importantly it has brought diverse musicians closer." So claims sarod player Amaan Ali Khan before leaving for a US tour.

Most of the other artists couldn’t be reached as they were busy spreading their mellifluous notes across the world. (The Bangash brothers are in US, santoor player Rahul Sharma is in South Africa, sarangi player Kamal Sabri is in UK).

Says Sabri, who is headed for Finland and Norway next, "Because this genre is so vast, being a part of it spells
exhaustive learning."

The World Music genre has been gathering steady steam all across the globe for the last three years. All the best to the Indian artists as they rise and shine as World musicians!
