CerebralMix 2010 Episode Five: Virtual World Fusion
The fusion of Asian and Middle-Eastern flavors and styles into western music is not new. It can be traced back to the classical music of Mozart, and definitely the operas of Pucini.
In the 1950’s, however the fascination with international sounds found a whole new home in lounge music. Most of this music was cheesy sounding and frequently mis-interpreted or mis-used international sounds. In the 1960’s the fusion of Jazz with with Indian tabla and sitar informed the music of groups like Oregon and The Paul Winter Consort.
All of this leads up to today where artists often take main-stream styles and fuse them with international sounds and styles from around the world. This week we take a journey through the fusion of international sounds and styles of yesterday, to today’s mainstream: A Virtual World Fusion, on this weeks Cerebral Mix.
