    Abstract:
    World Music is the currently popular alternative for terms such as primitive, non-Western, ethnic and folk music. It has come to the forefront by its use in commercial and academic circles. With the growth of worldwide systems of communication and commerce, music librarians will feel increasing demands for materials characterized as world music.
