The popularity of "world music"
is spreading around the globe today, with folk music
influencing new musical trends. In Taiwan, lounge and
chill-out music have become a steady trend where most
people tend to collect works of European DJs and mixers.
In "Hotel Rechampur", Japanese band "Blue
Asia" brings together a collection of sounds from
Turkey's Istanbul, such as Sufi and gypsy music. There
are also healing sounds from the tropical islands of
Bali. The blue skies and seas of Hawaii evoke musical
notes that inspire Slack-Key style guitar music. The
entire album is made up of ethnic sounds mixed with
electronica, creating an exotic flavor. Do not miss
out on this musical journey!
