Songlines is the magazine that looks at the world through music. Covering music from traditional and popular to contemporary and fusion, Songlines features artists from all around the globe: from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, Buena Vista Social Club to Bellowhead, Ravi Shankar to Rodrigo y Gabriela, Tinariwen to Taraf de Haidouks.
Songlines is packed full of the latest CD reviews, artist interviews, guides to particular world music traditions, travel adventures, beginner's and city guides, festival profiles, frontline reports and concert listings.
Every issue of Songlines magazine includes an exclusive 15-track compilation CD featuring our editor's selection of ten tracks from the best new album releases, as well as a five-track guest playlist. These have included selections by Damon Albarn, Jon Snow, Philip Pullman, Andy Kershaw, Kate Bush, Robert Plant, Cerys Matthews and Pelé. Excerpts from each of these tracks can be streamed through the Songlines Tablet edition from the Jan/Feb 2013 issue (#89). Simply click the red play button on the album covers or review pages which will automatically open your web browser and stream the track (this is the same for video links). To return back to the edition, click your device's home button (the centre bottom button) twice in quick succession and the Songlines app icon will appear at the bottom of the screen. Select that, and the magazine will reload where you left it.
