Luckily, the recent portable recording
technology, coupled with the phenomenal enthusiasm of many musicologists
around the world, have finally managed to capture the essence of many of
the priceless gems of the world's original music. Alas, as we are rejoicing
this fact, those same precious cultures are dying the agonizing death caused
by the transnational corporate terror, all in the name of profit. Not only
are the habitats, that made possible those marvelous musical inventions,
being exploited and destroyed, thus obliterating the substratum for any
future creations; the people, too, are being rudely coerced into slavishly
mimicking the zombie-like behavior of the people from the so-called "developed"
countries. This "new world order" rests on the vision that everybody must
be fed the same "happy meal", must listen to the same lifeless Top 10 list
of synthetic monotonous 'music', must wear the same type of clothing, must
watch the same CNN channel, and so forth... Only such a monolithic mass
of people can be easily controlled and manipulated.
On the bright side, people who manage to discover the beauty of the indigenous, ethnic music, realize that there is no going back -- never again will they indulge in consuming the tasteless, lifeless products that have been spoon-fed to them by their own governments and corporations.
These pages are dedicated to exploring the areas of music which have not been created with the intent to brain wash and manipulate anybody. Ethnic music is the undefiled expression of our everyday lives.
