The best of the best duke it out in seven separate classifications at this year's Songlines Music Awards, each in the hope of landing a prestigious gong. Nominees in the geographical categories – Africa & Middle East, Americas, Europe, Asia & Pacific and Fusion – were selected by our crack team of international contributors, while the Best Artist and Best Group nominees were voted for by you, our readers.

The winners in all of these categories will be announced in the June 2022 issue (#178, on sale May 13), while the Newcomer and World Pioneer award recipients will be announced later in the year.
