Probably you didn’t stumble across this blog to read about Western music, but hopefully you still love music wherever it comes from or possibly especially when it’s foreign – because in this section, we introduce music from everywhere in the world.
DISCLAIMER: We do not know music from all places and we have included some countries whose music market we do not know as explicitly as the Korean one. We aren’t deliberately trying to misrepresent anyone’s country or culture.
