The Good Kind of Globalization

Serious worldbeat. You really need to watch this.

This really is globalization at its best. Ideas are thrown up, race around the world, and are re-made into something new and exciting before coming home to blow preconceived notions apart. Sometimes the world has to kick your ass.

  1. Yeah, it's interesting, and I take your point, but it also worries me when I see expansion of global monoculture and decline of diversity. So we have young Japanese who think they're black breakdancers... but who's doing kabuki theater? When everybody is watching YouTube, who's going to the preserving and innovating african druming or Indonesian shadow theater?
