I wish that it were so. But there are "world music fans" out there. In Stockholm they all live on Södermalm and buy their records from an incense-smelling shop called Multikulti which carries everything from middle-aged african troubareurs to low-key brazilian Jazz, but no Bhangra, Soca, Reggae, Carioca Funk, Zouk, Bongo Flava or other music that's actually listened to in the countries concerned.
