Not even 1%.

And Blind Chile is determined to keep it that low.

Looking at the broad range of 'ethnic' music - I do have quite a collection of modern Turkish music - there are some superb singers and instrumentalists there. Turkey is a huge country with influences from Arabic, Slavic and Asian sounds.

Check out the mysterious and haunting Sibel Pamuk

Lots of Motown, Atlantic soul/RnB, classic jazz and blues. Probably about 5%, because a large proportion of my music collection is classical.

Paul: your intent is conspicuously decrepit; out there for all to marvel at.

Your out to make me a racist.

Alright then: I DO abhor the vast majority of music coming out of Africa. But China too and Latin America (but not South America & Mexico cos there was a period when these countries made good hard/psych/prog.). Anything made by nomadic peoples is shit to my ears also - that alone encompases lotta races.

So wot?

Blind Chile yam MUSICALLY a bigot.

And, while we are at it, who is to say Blind chile is not BLACK? Is it strange for , say a Ukrainian or Latvian , to hate his own country's history of music ?

I am a bigot for fucking PARTY music - that includes lotta races from salsa races down to, yes, African. (But there is some King Sunny Ade-wotsit that I can stomach.

I enjoy the music that comes out of India and the Balkans, but I generally hate "music" that is tribal. Does that make me a racist?

It is EVEN questionable to label me a MUSICAL racist.

Simply put: the standards I espouse in my choice of music are the sole reason why my collectro is less than 1% black. Not the colour.
Coltrane, miles Davis,Grant green (he IS black, isn't he?) do NOTHING for me.
And, on the other end of the totem, black party pop and much, much worse yet....brrrrr...I don't want to even think of that SHIT.


You can retreat to the comforting fantasy that I am a racist.

Tell you wot: I will even help you along that road: I hate "the Jeffersons" and basically all black/Jewish television.


Is Joe a racist cos he listens to mainly classical music.

Ahh no. But I am cos I listen to prog, right?


Fark off.


And I'm calling ad hom on Paul.

Ad Hominey-grits.

Fret: I suppose you know Erkin Koray?


Arabic/Balkan/Turkish crossover:

The first Selda lp is good.
Hardal - two lps
Three Mustapha Three is light-hearted noveltymusic folk. Very good.

I can give you maybe 20 more if you like. But be aware that Blind Chile is formly entrenched in the 70s. Don't know beyond that....and don't wanneur know

That's all as maybe, but just what is the point of the question in the first place?
