Global Music Magazine – Our Best Music from Around the Globe
“Global Music Magazine” (formerly “Weltmusik-Magazin”) is a german, independent, non-profit online music magazine, nearly without any stylistic* and regional restrictions. It provides an undogmatic view to the international music scene. The magazine is online since 07/2007.
Until 2015 the name was “Weltmusik-Magazin”. Since we have never understood ourselves as a world music magazine, we changed the name to “Global Music Magazine”. Not a particularly imaginative name, but it fits with the content and that’s what it’s all about.
The BAMF (Federal Office for Migration and Refugees) has been introducing our magazine for a long time already in the literature recommendations of its learning offers under the keyword “Intercultural project”. However, with our first, still working address www.welt-musik.net.
*Exceptions: Rap, german “Schlager”, EDM, pure mainstream, violence-glorifying, intolerant, fascistic, racistic, misogynistic and otherwise discriminatory music and this
Inquiries in terms of content marketing are undesirable because we reject this form of marketing as surreptitious advertising!
Album promotion / Reviews / Submissions Again and again CDs are lost on the way to us. Finally, we received an opened envelope from which one of three CDs was stolen. Therefore, we ask for a shipping notification when sending physical samples. Please be invited to send promo-material, but we do not promise to review it. We need the album as mp3 files or a CD. A download should be available for a longer time than only a few days. We do ignore stream-only samples and incomplete albums. For easy data transfer please use our submission form.
