The Best Music from Around the World
Songlines was launched in 1999 and is the definitive magazine for world music - music that has its roots in all parts of the globe, from Mali to Mexico, India to Iraq. Whether this music is defined as traditional, contemporary, folk or fusion, Songlines is the only magazine to truly represent and embrace it. However, Songlines is not just about music, but about how the music fits into the landscape: it's about politics, history and identity.
Delivered in both print and digital formats, Songlines, through its extensive articles and reviews, is your essential and independent guide to a world of music and unique culture, whether you are starting on your journey of discovery or are already a seasoned fan.
Songlines is published 10 times a year. Every issue comes with a free Top of the World CD, featuring tracks from the best new album releases, as well as a guest playlist.
