2016 best of world music

2016 en iyi etnik müzik albümleri

Each year World music genre grows in itself on an organic basis. Creativity fuses the vast majority of rhythms out there and forces artists to push further. Personally I believe music lovers are extremely pleased with the productivity, creativity and variety of this genre. Come to think of it you have the world music flowing your way, from each and every corner of the world. Hence it was very  difficult for me to choose the first best twenty albums of the genre. Of course these are personal choices and I had to eliminate a whole lot of beautiful productions. I have also put together a playlist on Spotify for you to listen to the best music out there. It’s going to be too early but I want to wish you all a beautiful new year.
