Currently I work from home so I don't get out much to browse the stores any more. Also, we no longer have cable TV. Sure I could shop online but don't always know who to look for. My significant other combs YouTube and finds all kinds of new artists. But I don't have the patience to do that. I have however, stumbled across a blog that specializes in introducing its readers to musical artists from around the world: Germany, Greece, Mali, South Africa, Canada, Hungary, France, Caribbean and on and on and on. You can search this site by names of artists, by countries and/or by genres. As of March 2017, it had over 4000 followers. Their posts date back to 2011. The last post is dated December 2015. They have so much variety, it makes me dizzy. But I love it!! Why don't you visit? If you love world music, you'll love this blog!
If you see the banner below, you should be at the right site.
(Hope they don't change their banner.)
