Music is a language that is really universal. Each culture have their own particular type of music and instruments. Since communication these days between and among nations is almost instantaneous (because of the world wide web), it's no wonder that it's easier to find whatever you need. Like, if you need an affordable m audio midi controller, you can go online and search for it. Or if you want something for your guitar/piano/musical instrument, you just go online and give it a search. What's great about it is that you don't need loads of legwork just to find what you are looking for; just a few button pushes and voila!
Isn't technology great? :)
