2020 TRIPS - to be ANNOUNCED

What our travellers say...

“A beautiful country, wonderful people, art, music, & culture. A huge shout out to [tour leader] Russ [Slater]. He’s a great guy and did a fabulous job!” Marcie Wolf (Colombia tour)

“I really think these Songlines Music Travel trips are excellent value. You go to a part of the globe that is just so rich in musical culture and you’re guided to all the best places by someone who has lived there, speaks the language and loves the music. You can’t get better than that.” Manureen Ni Fiann (Senegal tour)

“The whole trip was excellent! The opportunities provided by the tour leader to meet local bands amd have private performances were outstanding, memorable and very special. So was the group of fellow travellers. The two weeks passed by so fast and I enjoyed every minute. Many thanks to all involved.” Jane Foulsham (Cuba tour)

“This is an incredible tour. We had the privilege of meeting musicians in their own homes and villages – and listening to their music was an experience of a lifetime that I will never forget.” Tiki Kyte (Rajasthan tour)

“This has been a superb trip – educational, cultural, absorbing and a feast for all the senses – the music, colour, tastes, smells and sights. I hope to take this and other trips again with Songlines.” Raxa Melita (Essaouira tour)
