In the context of music, it would mean 'mix'. Though, it can otherwise also mean 'interbreeding' with related connotations with 'mestizo'.
I went to www.afromix.org just to check up as well.
The term is undoubtedly 'mix' here. Though if you have any specific music doubts, then the word 'mix' can mean a variety of things. For instance, reggae music is mix music. Rap music is mix music. 'Rai' music, the kind popularised by the French Algerian singer Khaled is also mix music.

In the context of music, and world music in particular, use "mix". Given the name of the website, this should work perfectly well and I know it is the term used in world music.
