Some like culture, and some like Culture — art, symphony and opera, jazz and dance, the works. For the Big C culture fan, Culturekiosque is a score. It’s a high-quality webzine that lets you keep your finger on the pulse of the international culture scene. The site notably offers an events calendar that lists cultural events taking place across the world, something that travelers might appreciate. It also features more substantive articles and reviews, which, although written in English, are not limited to the cultural happenings in the Anglophone world. (The site explicitly refers to itself as "The European Guide to Arts and Culture Worldwide.") So, while you’ll get Culturekiosque’s take on how things went down at this year’s Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert, you’ll also get their view on how the Orchestre de Paris is faring under its new German conductor. Also worth a particular mention is the web site’s special jazz series called Sons of Miles, a 41-part series that looks back at Miles Davis and the many jazz musicians he influenced. A great resource for the jazz officianado. To access many parts of the site, users will need to register.
