    Someone like Rumi who was a Persian poet, his works travelled through time/translated in multiple languages.

    or someone like Laozi who wrote Tao Te Ching

    why don't we take foreign music from the current times and appreciate it like old works

    Kind of general, I suppose it’s who you associate with and whether you’re involved in academia, art communities, etc.

    There had recently been a huge interest in NFTs/digital art among the youngsters.

    well, i think at least part of the issue is that these things become revered over time. So of course theres no current poets like rumi, only in 1000 yrs will we see a past poet of such revere.

    1000 yrs ago only a privileged few knew rumis poetry.. its not like your average joe knew who rumi was, not even close. Now lots of people know Rumi, guaranteed more than did in the 1200s, and guaranteed in further away places

    Hmm, that’s not where I was going with this

    I’m thinking about about how these were ethnic works and how white people enjoy them 1000s of years later

    Why can’t the western world appreciate ethnic works?

    Why can’t we have foreign music on the charts like it’s a regular thing ?

    I hate the western world

    I feel like the NFT craze died out

    I think generalizing worldwide recognition as being western exceptionalism is a little too broad.

    Thereís music every culture and country likes specifically, and then thereís music people around the world agree to enjoy. Specific cultural music is instantaneously and readily available at the touch of a finger, and youíre welcome to find it and enjoy it.

    But, hoping cultural music catches on isnít really practical. Nobody is clamoring for local Mexican accordion songs or Indian flute and guitar music.
