OT- Resonating (was:Re: Civitas Urbanus (new album release))

This is way OT, but what's up with that?  Sure, music made by  
Europeans may speak to some part of my Euro-mutt brain, (and music  
like Per's sure does) but what does it mean when this Euro-mutt hears  
Indian classical music for the first time and falls instantly in  
love?  My upbringing was total urban NJ and there was a total lack of  
Asians in our tiny world.  Mostly Hispanic-Latin American (70%) with  
the rest being split half and have between African decent and  
European decent.

Other Asian music, like Japanese and Chinese don't do it for me.   
Folk music from Europe and Latin America drives me crazy.  Can't  
stand it.  Inversely, lot's of African music totally resonates with  
me.  I've often wondered as to why a kid brought up on the musical  
scores of Bugs Bunny, The Partridge Family and The Monkees would  
gravitate quite specifically toward some ethnic music and not  
others.  Theories?
