 About Naxos World

Naxos World's mission is to provide an affordable, comprehensive, authentic musical experience to entertain and educate music listeners.

Naxos World offers high quality World music designed to entertain and educate. The key to the line is the extension of the Naxos philosophy--repertoire-driven, not artist-driven, and a comprehensive library concept which will ultimately include all forms of world music.

Naxos World recordings are varied and differing in style and target audience. The product consists of the following three "types" of World music:

  • Traditional, folk, or "roots" music associated with the musical heritage of a culture
  • Modern, popular music currently enjoyed by the youth of a culture
  • Obscure, oft-ignored musical traditions, both traditional and modern, of a culture

Naxos World releases one new entry into our world music library each month. Our CDs are available for only $9.99 (€9.99) at all the best music and book stores!
