Nowadays, the music market is mostly dominated by Western pop and electronic music. Songs from American rappers, pop singers and European DJs are worldwide. When narrowing to a specific musical genre, we can find more diversity and unique styles of musical bands or singers. However, whether you live in Europe, Asia, Africa, America or Oceania, how many artists from your neighbouring countries do you know?
In Europe, many countries often share borders with four or five countries, but living in Europe myself I must admit, I do not know so many artists from these countries. The only ones that come to mind are DJs, which is not a bad thing but it makes me realize how small the scope of my knowledge is. On this website we believe that discovering other cultures are important to understand the world we live in and to understand each other better. Culture is a very wide topic and goes through every aspect of a society, its arts, its traditions, its values, etc. Music is one aspect.
In this section we will try to feature artists from all over the world. We hope you enjoy it! Leave us your impressions, opinions and ideas! If you know any trending artist from your country or region that you believe is worth sharing, please send us a message, we’ll always be happy to discover their work!
