Wayne Marshall, an ethnomusicologist at MIT, talks about how the increasingly accessible music and video-production applications and the popularity of social networks allows novel musical ideas to spread, morph and gain strength around the world.

There’s a new breed of young, underground composers and DJs who are redefining the world music scene by adapting and mixing different genres of music, circulating and sharing them on the web.

Wayne Marshall, an ethnomusicologist at MIT, calls this phenomenon ‘World Music 2.0’ and attributes it to the increasingly accessible music and video-production applications and the popularity of social networks that allows anyone to present their music to a wide audience. A highly recommended read.
