About Us

Songlines is the magazine that looks at the world through its music 

Songlines covers music from traditional and popular to contemporary and fusion, featuring well-known artists from Tinariwen, Bellowhead, Buena Vista Social Club and Manu Chao, to the newcomers making their mark both at home and abroad.

Songlines is packed full of the latest CD reviews, artist interviews, guides to burgeoning scenes and up-and-coming stars, travel adventures, frontline reports and live music listings.

Every issue comes with a free Top of the World CD, featuring tracks from the best new album releases, as well as a five-track guest playlist. These have included selections by David Attenborough, Rufus Wainwright, Damon Albarn, Carrie Gracie, Ian Rankin, Carla Bruni and many more.

There is a wealth of truly wonderful music waiting to be discovered; yet music is also about politics, history, ethnicity, the environment and so much more. Songlines is your reliable guide to it all.
