Dustin Wong ~ Fluid World Building 101 With Shaman Bambu

‘World building’ is a concept I’ve seen used mostly in literature and videogames, but there’s a rarely recognized limited measure of it that’s been used in popular music, primarily in prog rock, in which fantasy and sci-fi have historical significance
