Launched in 1999, Songlines is the leading magazine covering traditional, contemporary, folk and fusion music from around the world. Each edition is packed with the latest album reviews, artist interviews, festival profiles and travel adventures from every corner of the globe. Music is about culture, politics, history and the environment and Songlines is your essential guide to it all.

If you’re new to Songlines, download our Aug/Sept 2014 issue (#102) for free. Features include an interview with Afrobeat pioneers Tony Allen & Orlando Julius, as they both celebrate 50-year careers with new albums.

There is also an interview with Scottish author, avid music consumer and vinyl addict Ian Rankin, who speaks to Jo Frost (Songlines editor) about how he’s always willing to take a punt on new music, especially if there’s a good story behind it.

Also featured in the trial issue: a feature on Israeli musician Idan Raichel and his collaboration with Malian musician Vieux Farka Touré; Malian jeli singer Kassé Mady Diabaté; and violinists Anna Phoebe and Jyotsna Srikanth. We also pick our Essential 10 Afrobeat albums that you must own, plus Chris Moss provides a Beginner’s Guide to salsa superstar Rubén Blades.

The July 2024 issue (#199) of Songlines is out now, and it’s an Africa Special. We speak to Salif Keita, the ‘Golden Voice of Africa’ who is back from retirement with a new album and a mission to get young people playing traditional instruments again. We hear from The Zawose Queens, the first female-fronted band to break out of Tanzania, and The Joy, whose ebullient harmonies recall Ladysmith Black Mambazo at their best. Franck Biyong pays homage to the African greats, Def Mama Def represent the future of Senegalese music and Lady Donli shows how to build a career as an independent female African musician. We have a Banjo Summit with Rhiannon Giddens and Belá Fleck, discussing the instrument’s hidden history and why it’s riding high in the charts again, and a photo essay depicting the madcap Courir de Mardi Gras. We find out the albums which shaped Raghu Dixit, hear about New Regency Orchestra and their aim to reignite Latin big band fever, give Abdullah Ibrahim the Beginner’s Guide treatment, and chat to Asha Puthli about her ambitions to unite Indian classical music and jazz. Plus, Hermanos Gutiérrez, Ars Nova Napoli, Kiran Ahluwalia, Hasna el Becharia, Cimafunk’s CimaFest, Birdvox, Tremor, Alessandro ‘Asso’ Stefana, Fes’ Festival of Sufi Culture, and our Essential 10 Big Band Revival albums. Plus, all the usual news, listings, reviews, competitions and so much more. Subscribers will also receive our accompanying compilation (CD/digital) featuring ten tracks from the best new music releases, and five bonus selections to accompany the issue.
