Global Music Magazine – The Best Music from Around the World

“Global Music Magazine” is an independent german online music magazine, nearly without any stilistic* and regional restrictions. We are people with open minds and a 360-degree taste. Our goal is, to provide an undogmatic view to the international music scene. Our magazine is online since 07/2007.

Until 2015 our name was “Weltmusik-Magazin”. Since we have never understood ourselves as a world music magazine, we changed our name to “Global Music Magazine”. Not a particularly imaginative name, but it fits with the content and that’s what it’s all about.

At irregular intervals, we present CDs with so-called modern classical music. We take into account compositions from the 20th and 21st century.

*Exceptions: Rap, esotericism, german “Schlager”, fascistic music and the like, and this

Inquiries in terms of content marketing are undesirable because we reject this form of marketing as surreptitious advertising!

Statistics (as at Sept. 30th, 2016)

Our website is online since July 2007. Except for the first three months (July, Aug., Sept. 2007) all accesses on our domain were counted. From Oct. 2007 until Sept. 2016 (including) 9,927,166 times an article was read on our website (average 91,075 times per month – statistics were provided by our web hoster). Every visitor reads an average of 3.5 articles per visit. We must admit, that we are very surprised by the high number of visitors.
