Lately, with an idea and a desire to expand my musical horizons, I've been in a search for some good world music (a genre I'm less familiar with as apposed to jazz, classical, rock, pop etc...)
Some modern jazz artists I follow talk about the influence of world music on them:
Julian Lage - Indian music.
Tigran Hamasyan - Norwegian and Swedish folk music.
David Sanchez - African music.
I was wondering if some of you could recommend on some important artists or even specific albums I should check out, from the above list of categories, or any other good ones as well.
