An investigation of commercialized and commodified world music, as it existed in 2010, using industry data as well as looking at ethnomusicological criticisms. Data was also culled from an on-line forum, with commentaries on my inaugural professorial lecture in 2008 and subsequent discussions of the issues raised. This paper was first presented as a keynote at the 2010 Cultural Diversity in Music Education conference in Sydney.
