Songlines Magazine

After recently listening to the Songlines Awards compilation CD I decided to subscribe to the magazine, and I've got to say it's been a brilliant decision. For about £30 you get 8 issues of the magazine with the attached 'Top of the World' CD sampler and a world music album thrown into the bargain. The content combines world music features, news and reviews in an accessible, if rather serious style, with the 'Music Buyer's Guide' invaluable in recommending new and exciting music. The compilation CD that arrives with the magazine has been the real surprise as issue 76's offering is absolute quality, with a real mix of styles and fusions. The 5 tracks selected by guest Nitin Sawhney are all fantastic too. I'd recommend it to anyone with world music leanings of any proportion.
