I remember she would send me very businesslike but charming faxes — now alas too faded to read. I found her extremely professional, well informed and a joy to work with. I know she had a reputation for being a diva, but that was not my experience. She spent so much of her life on the road that I think her exacting demands about, say, air conditioning were born of her experiences of what could have and had gone wrong.
Thank goodness things are changing now, but she was about 20 years ahead of her time. The wide open spaces of the Royal Festival Hall shrank in her hands. Every gesture, vocal and physical, carried to the back wall. Her high-cheekboned smile will never be surpassed.

She conveyed joy like no one else. A couple of years ago, I met her at a dinner and drove her back to her hotel. She squeezed my leg as she said thank you and I thought that my life was complete.

She commanded attention, despite all the odds — in a way, she was actually inspired by the odds. She set such a high standard that she was intimidating and inspiring at the same time.

Depending on style and context, world music can sometimes share the new-age music genre, a category that often includes ambient music and textural expressions from indigenous roots sources. Good examples are Tibetan bowls , Tuvan throat singing , Gregorian chant or Native American flute music.
World music blended with new-age music is a sound loosely classified as the hybrid genre 'ethnic fusion'. The subgenre world fusion is often mistakenly assumed to refer exclusively to a blending of Western jazz fusion elements with world music. Although such a hybrid expression falls easily into the world fusion category, the suffix "fusion" in the term world fusion should not be assumed to mean jazz fusion.
Western jazz combined with strong elements of world music is more accurately termed world fusion jazz ,  ethnic jazz or non-Western jazz. World fusion and global fusion are nearly synonymous with the genre term worldbeat , and though these are considered subgenres of popular music, they may also imply universal expressions of the more general term world music. Although it primarily describes traditional music, the world music category also includes popular music from non-Western urban communities e.
South African "township" music and non-European music forms that have been influenced by other so-called third-world musics e. Afro-Cuban music. For many years, Paris has attracted numerous musicians from former colonies in West and North Africa. This scene is aided by the fact that there are many concerts and institutions that help to promote the music. Algerian and Moroccan music have an important presence in the French capital.
On 29 June , a meeting of interested parties gathered to capitalize on the marketing of this genre. Paul Simon had released the world music-influenced album Graceland in This project and the work of Peter Gabriel and Johnny Clegg among others had, to some degree, introduced non-Western music to a wider audience. Although specialist music stores had been important in developing the genre over many years, the record companies, broadcasters and journalists had been finding it difficult to build a following because the music, itself, seemed too scarce.
At the outset of the meeting, the musician Roger Armstrong advised the reason why something had to be done:. This discouraged [the retail stores] from stocking the material in any depth and made it more difficult for the record buyers to become acquainted with our catalogs. The first concern of the meetings was to select the umbrella name that this music would be listed under. Suggestions included "world beat" and prefixing words such as "hot" or "tropical" to existing genre titles.
Afterward, they agreed that despite the publicity campaign, this wasn't an exclusive club—and that for the good of all, any label that sold this type of music could use the name. Another issue was the distribution methods at the time. Most main labels were unhappy with the lack of specialist knowledge in their sales force, which led to poor service.
Many larger outlets were reluctant to carry the music, because they favored larger releases they could promote within the store. It was difficult to justify a large presentation expense with limited stock going into stores.
