Each month we present to you the top world music album releases, as seen through the eyes of the World Music Charts Europe and Transglobal World Music Chart. At the end of each year, both monthly listings add up to the winner of the WOMEX Label Award and its runner-ups.
For the World Music Charts Europe (WMCE), the world's first association of its kind, Radio DJs and programmers from 24 European countries collect their top albums of the month - usually presented in the DJs' programmes and the channels that present them. EURORADIO offers the opportunity to syndicate these programmes to members of the exchange system.
Transglobal World Music Chart (TWMC) was conceived in 2015 as an open network of music activists spreading world, roots and traditional music. It is open to makers and shakers worldwide, limited only to the fact that members work in the field on a regular basis.
