Today the mediasphere is alive with a new kind of "world music." The old masters of the great ethnic traditions have a global audience, while DJ's sample beats and create new mixes for the intelligent dance floor. Almost any musician can have their own studio and release their music worldwide online — with photos, video and text on sites like MySpace.com. The good ones travel, perform, and build worldwide networks of collaborators and audience. The Internet ties it all together. For these musicians, even in the midst of all the political struggles of today — it really is a new world.
