A few days ago I got a very nice email from Jimi Mbaye praising WorldBeatPlanet. He has a new album, which isn’t available in the US, and he now has his own studio and has been producing albums for other artists.
I’ve rearranged the topics at WorldBeatPlanet and eliminated the regional topics, since so much music crosses regional boundaries.
I’ve also been experimenting with a professional Drupal layout for an artist-oriented site. Instead of a news page with user-submitted stories like I now have at WorldBeatPlanet & MacMegasite, it will have artist-related pages. Only registered artists can create pages and each artist can have his own forum.
