Today, the BBC has unveiled a new archive of world music, allowing you to sample the musical traditions of more than 40 countries. India, Corsica, China, Cuba, Iran, Brazil, Mozambique, Turkey – they’re all represented in this eclectic collection of indigenous music. Often assuming a fair amount of risk, BBC 3 traveled to each country (including several conflict zones) to record the music. But it pays off when you get to hear the little known music coming out of North Korea, for example. Featuring 100s of hours of free recordings, this archive is now available to a global audience. You can start exploring right here, right now.
