General traditional Chinese orchestral stuff.

Dizi and Erhu. Beautiful instruments. I play them a little bit myself, but I suck.

I've got a soft spot for Gamelan. I couldn't name a particular performing group or song, spotify just kind of takes care of it for me.

I don't like any western groups at all!

Just listen to the theme music for Bonanza, how atrociously iritating...

Not sure what I find most disturbing. The fact that you don't like western or that you watch Bonanza.

I'm more of a traditionalist.

With that said (I know this is breaking the rules, but I feel it's worth mentioning), I love Paul Simon's Rhythm of the Saints album. It's heavily influenced by Native American instruments, predominately percussion.
