I've been given an impossible task at work. The company makes language learning software and they are including a cultural section with examples of "typical" music for various countries. I'm supposed to locate the music.
What the heck is "typical" French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Brazillian, Chinese, etc. music?
When I asked my boss if, for example, ancient Gagaku court music would be appropriate for Japan, he made a face and said, "No, we want what's typical today, in 2009."
So, should I just pick top-40 hits for all countries? How would you handle this confusing assignment? All suggestions appreciated.
Many thanks, k
