As the title says: I’d love to know about bands, orchestras, artists, etc. that use non-Western scales . The reason is that whenever I try to listen to examples of music out of the 12-note temperament it sounds horribly out of tune but I know that’s just a cultural thing. So I was wondering if anyone has good recommendations for “gateway” music that is outside enough to “train” my ear but not so outside that it will just be impossible for me to listen to. I have been listening to old jazz players like Anouar Brahem but I think he is still very much in the Western jazz tradition although it has a lot of non-Western textures.
 I don’t study music professionally so I might be using the wrong definition here. What I mean is specifically music that doesn’t follow the 12-note temperament, where either quarter notes or other intervals are used.
