Naxos Music Group is pleased to announce the re-launch of the Naxos World label. It will release two or three albums every month that represent a wide range of regions and cultures from around the world. The label will focus on two recording series—one that features the folk music of distinct cultures, and one that focuses on adventures in fusion. Although the upcoming albums will no doubt appeal to those already familiar with the world music genre, they will also suit the casual listener. Music lovers from around the world can join in sharing the experience of contrasting sounds from unique cultures, aided by detailed introductory booklets that will inform both newcomers and aficionados alike.
The Naxos World label aims to create an inspiring space where artists and audiences find each other, make different parts of the world and other cultures more accessible, and bring opportunities to artists that don’t yet have access to the global markets. Few things unite people in the way music does; it’s a special force that disregards social barriers and discrimination in all its forms. And world music is the biggest celebration of cultures and diversity that goes beyond languages and borders in today’s world.
The first iteration of the Naxos World label assembled a varied catalogue of over 40 titles, winning a GRAMMY award for Best Traditional World Music album for Sacred Tibetan Chant (76044-2) by Sherab Ling Monks in 2004.
