World styles
« on: February 23, 2020, 08:07:42 PM »
The Genos promo blurb on Yamaha's website promises styles that span 'all musical genres from pop to jazz to Classical to rock to hip-hop to EDM to regional and world flavors'.
It seems strange then that there's no 'world' category on the Genos, and seemingly very little in the way of African (e.g. Malian or South African) styles. I was looking for something with a Graceland, 'township' sort of vibe and eventually tracked down the Tyros 5 Zouk style, which I really like, but which also leaves me wanting more!
Can anyone recommend a richer seam of styles with this kind of feel?

BogdanH has very kindly provided me with the styles from the SX700 African pack:,54366.0.html

I've revoiced the rhythm 1 track on the first 3 styles, which originally referred to kits from the pack - and am pretty happy with the results (except maybe on the afrobeat style, which sounds OK but probably better with that track muted as it ends up just sounding a bit too much like a click track!).

I've uploaded my set here:
