Songlines Music Travel

Tango in Buenos Aires. Flamenco in an Andalusian bar. Kora music in Mali. Ecstatic Rajasthani dancing at a local festival.

Nothing beats experiencing music in situ - with the food, the ambience and the local people. Yet finding the best music isn't always that simple.

That's why Songlines Music Travel is offering dedicated music trips for music lovers worldwide, bringing you the excitement of real music directly where it's made.

World Music Holidays and Tours

Our trips are organised in partnership with Imaginative Traveller, a Dragoman company, which has over 35 years of experience arranging travel all over the world. Their attention to detail, research and planning are essential for tours like these, along with experience of how to ensure everything operates seamlessly. The formula is simple: Songlines provides the musical knowledge and Imaginative Traveller provide the travel expertise.

Songlines Music Travel – Music, Culture, Dancing Holidays and Tours Music, Culture and Dancing Holidays

We have the insight and unrivalled contacts to take you beneath the surface for some very special musical experiences. Each trip is led by a Songlines Travel Leader and will often involve private concerts, jam sessions and meetings with musicians and instrument-makers. Groups will be kept deliberately small - between 10 and 20 - to make the experience more intimate and memorable. Of course it's not exclusively about music and on your visit you will also see the historic and cultural highlights of wherever you may be visiting.
