As usual music transports viewers wherever you want them, faster than anything, except the sense of smell. These examples from SmartSound’s collection of Royalty Free World Music demonstrate how you can make them feel almost-at-home with a recognizable ethnic sound, or disorient with rhythms and instrument too general to immediately pinpoint.

SmartSound's Royalty Free Irish music kicks your video production into high gear in a few beats or less, thanks to the enduring quality of the genre itself. Irish music remains one of the few genres that have not only morphed and evolved into some of the most popular rock, pop, and soul performers of modern times (U-2, Enya, Van Morrison), but has kept its traditional forms alive and thriving.
Off-beat music genre, Reggae, developed literally off the beat. Unlike most other forms of music, the emphasis is on the third beat of the measure, instead of the first (downbeat). Its roots hail from Africa, by way of Jamaica, where Reggae was developed in the 1960’s, as well as from jazz, and R&B.
The music line is often slower than some other Caribbean styles, but sly and seductive, and well suited for background music designed to put you into a relaxed, stay-in-the-present state.
If Africa is the cradle of humanity, African music is the cradle of all modern music, with a compelling, incessant beat, and an earthy energy. Pop, rock, soul, R&B, gospel, rap, and hip hop all trace their roots to the primitive soul of the African home.
Many Smartsound albums featuring Royalty Free African Music are compilations of several exotic themes around the world, as diverse as they are world-conscious and sophisticated. Check out World Beat for a collection of traditional sounds and contemporary arrangements.
