World music is a generic term that refers to all those recordings, especially non-western ones, that do not match the genres and subgenres already created. Since 1980, when the term was popularized, it has been used to categorize any type of foreign music. In general, the music belonging to this genre is characterized by being performed using traditional ethnic instruments and including ethnic modes, scales and musical inflections. The term “world music” has come to substitute, in some way, the term "folk" music, but some people consider that it should be eliminated and that this music should be integrated into other existing genres.
