This is way OT, but what's up with that? Sure, music made by Europeans may speak to some part of my Euro-mutt brain, (and music like Per's sure does) but what does it mean when this Euro-mutt hears Indian classical music for the first time and falls instantly in love? My upbringing was total urban NJ and there was a total lack of Asians in our tiny world. Mostly Hispanic-Latin American (70%) with the rest being split half and have between African decent and European decent. Other Asian music, like Japanese and Chinese don't do it for me. Folk music from Europe and Latin America drives me crazy. Can't stand it. Inversely, lot's of African music totally resonates with me. I've often wondered as to why a kid brought up on the musical scores of Bugs Bunny, The Partridge Family and The Monkees would gravitate quite specifically toward some ethnic music and not others. Theories?
