World Music Composers

As I have begun to explore the rich and exciting genre of World Music and as I notice that quite a few of us do write in that genre I am starting a group for us!

Crazy idea and a good link...

I'm seriously flirting with the idea of taking up Sitar. It might well be too late to be entertaining such notions. I was first introduced to harpsichord  about two decades ago. Still, I'm…Continue

I've just uploaded an mp3 of a one of my compositions "Portuguese Rain." I'm curous to hear what genre/tradition people hear it as.

Dear Fellow composers,

This is my new album app, which I just released recently. It features Singapore-developed high quality audio streaming technology and my Singapore contemporary Asia fusion music/band, Tze n Looking Glass

Check out the audio quality, it is quite amazing - audio CD clarity, depth of sound and you can hear all the details as recorded

Can I ask you to help me share this with other composers in your community ?

What is happening is that this Singaporean company call MP4SLS (the one that developed this app for me) are currently looking for more composers who would like their albums/music to presented in high quality audio format, to work with

If you are interested or have any queries, please drop me an email at - I will connect you directly to my friend from MP4SLS

Have a listen, and let me know what you think 



P.S: This is a Free preview app

I am waiting the day when will be any virtual instrument available in the market ,a   plug in which  imitates   any of  world ethnic  instruments close to make easy our job. I am tired to use my own samples which is hard to make, and tired to play with breath controller in the mouth and character control some pedals under feet. Hope soon some company will make something useful for world / ethnic music  other than some "necessary " loops.

I've composed a few World Music pieces. Have a listen and see what you think. There's an Indonesian Gamelan piece (neither authentic Javanese or Balinese, just somewhere in between), a Venezuelan harp piece and a Tahitian tribal dance.


I hope you enjoy them.

For those interested in African polyrhythms/percussion, I've attempted a piece titled "Kilimanjaro" that is on my home page here, if you're interested.

I am open to resolve any problems with understanding world music modes of various countries/regions.

New to the Composer forum. and this group.

I like music that comes from this world :)

Seriously, I have always enjoyed listening to and studying music from a variety of cultures. It has infused my film work immensely.
