World Music Video Wall

Welcome!! The World Music Video Wall on the homepage is your introduction to the site, with new carefully selected video clips from all over the World regularly uploaded. For the full experience and to enjoy all the great music previously posted on the Wall, please explore World Music videos from every country in the world (and most non sovereign territories) within the pages of the site. For even more hours and hours of great World Music on plenty of themed playlists, follow me on Spotify (under Apai Rentap). Please enjoy the selections below, with seven (so you can enjoy a different one every day of the week!) World Music videos representing the different regions of the world: North America and Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, North Africa and Middle East, Europe, Asia and Oceania, giving you a taste of the various musical genres coming from the diverse parts of our planet. And as a bonus, there are two World Reggae videos, showing how non Jamaicans take inspiration from this truly universal musical genre, whether linked or not to the Rastafari philosophy and/or faith. Thank you for liking, following and sharing on Facebook and Twitter, hoping to bring as many people's attention to cool artists and musical styles from around our one and only planet! Peace and One Love...
