WORLD MUSIC CHARTS - November 2020


WORLD MUSIC CHARTS - November 2020

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.

Homepage image: This month, we would like to highlight Oumou Sangare, awarded artist in WOMEX 2017, and her record "Nø Førmat!". Born in the Malian capital of Bamako, soulful and charismatic, she is an emblem for African womanhood. Straight out from our archive, take a look at the video below, shot during Oumou's residency in Berlin in 1993, when she did her German debut at the HEIMATKLÄNGE festival.
