World Music Concert Tickets

World Music Concert & Show Tickets

Expand your horizons with world music tickets from TicketSmarter! Encompassing a broad category of genres, styles, and artists, world music is one of the most expansive genre classifications on the planet.

Because of the wide range of artists under the world music banner, the terminology used to define the category is always evolving. The simplest definition is traditional music from non-western cultures, including Asian, African, and South American indigenous styles of music. This categorization, and the name "world music" is sometimes subject to criticism as it approaches music from a singular viewpoint.

To combat these criticisms, the definition of world music has shifted to mean, popular music from non-western locations. Though the term is still somewhat fraught, it is now largely focused on providing an avenue for people from the west to experience the music of other cultures in a succinct and digestible way under a single musical label.

Given this new definition, world music has evolved from being primarily local folk music into the pop hits of other countries. Today genres as varied as rock, metal, pop, hip hop, jazz, soul, and reggae can fall into various subsections of the world music umbrella.

Unsurprisingly, world music has not stayed contained in non-Western cultures. With the mass spread of music through streaming media, the lines between musical styles have become increasingly blurred. Some of the most famous modern examples of world music working its way into rock and western musical identities include Peter Gabriel's collaboration with Sufi singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn, Paul Simon, Tune-Yards, and Vampire Weekend. These groups have either directly worked with or have been influenced by the sounds of other cultures in a way that leaves an indelible mark on their output.

World music has a large following in the United States that has led to countless sold-out arenas, stadiums, and theatres, as well as the creation of numerous festivals. A few of the largest world music festivals in the US include The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, FloydFest, The Lotus World Music & Arts Festival, and the Starwood Festival. These exciting events provide ticket buyers with the opportunity to expand their cultural horizons in a fun and exciting atmosphere alongside friends and peers.
