\'Local music, not from here\' is a definition of world music which is often referred to, despite, or probably precisely because of its vague all-encompassing character. This definition, however, raises several interesting questions. Not all music of the world is actually called world music, so how and by whom are the distinctions made between what is and what is not accepted and appreciated as world music? The general focus of the study positons is in the framework of ethnomusicology and popular music studies, with contributions from cultural, media and post-colonial studies.
