|Look at this big ass map!!!|
The economy is in the toilet, and it feels ever-worse waning days of summer. County Grind knows full well how great it is to get away, but since most of us lowly scribes can afford only an armchair and the local library's "travel" section, we bring you the stickiest days' first Musical Staycation Destination: Asia!
Ahh... Asia, the largest continent on the planet, is generally not known for its music. OK, call up your nearest fanboy or otaku and they'll tell you all about anime music and J-Pop shit, but truth be told, Asia is made up of Arabs, Israelis, Turks, Uzbeks, Georgians, Armenians, Chinese, Laotians, Cambodians, Mongolians, Russians, and so many more ethnic groups worth visiting -- via the interwebs, anyhow. Let's have some fun with their music via these five artists!
