    The term, 'world ethnic music' was first introduced by the ethnomusicologist Mr. Robert E Brown during the 1960s and this term became popular during the 1980s. The term refers to the collection of different types of music sung and listened in the different parts of the world.

    The traditional music might be the folk songs as well as the other types of song which depicts the tradition of a part of the world. The ethnic music of different parts might even use the unique instruments like the gaida which is used in Bulgaria, the kora that is a West African harp, the sitar used in India which is a stringed instrument and mainly consists of these instruments. The instruments thus are the most essential if you are to go for the traditional music of the different parts of the world. The traditional music is quite rhythmic and this is not the same as the western music.

    The traditional instruments used are the most peculiar and they do not produce such sounds that are quite familiar to the western music. This form of music does not have any resemblance to the western music. The Japanese music, Middle Eastern compositions or the Indian compositions do not have any resemblance with the western music such as Celtic music.

    The gospels are sung in the churches can also be taken as this form of music as they depict the Christianity religion and shows the various prospect of the up gradation of the religion. The lyrics and the tune of the gospels can be called as one of the example of the form of music. There is much music that depicts the religion like the gospels which enlightens the Christianity religion and likewise there is sacred music for the Muslims and Hindus as well and that music can be called as the world ethnic music.
