I guess it's just lack of cultural knowledge(musically),,,but you've got to
deal with it,,,it's like all those house productions, where they throw a
trumpet in their track and call it jazzy house................
Same thing with people in the USA calling themselves Americans........I
guess America extends all the wy to Argentina.
This goesw back the never ending labeling thread.............
Don't label me...
