Best Self-Help Service for Unknowns (2008)

World Music Institute

Don't let anyone tell you "world music" is the Next Big Thing. It's several, and WORLD MUSIC INSTITUTE has them all covered, catering to the multiplying tastes of the mixing-bowl metropolis. The institute is tucked away in a combination cubbyhole and treasure-house of international recordings and books for sale, but for this connections-conscious org all New York's a stage. In kindred concert venues citywide, from Symphony Space to Washington Square Church, WMI brings some Manhattanites a touch of the unfamiliar and others a taste of home.
