Who would have thought that National Geographic would be interested in making music available online? National Geographic has been known for showing documentaries on the different aspects of science, culture and others. There are TV programs, the website and even printed materials but music — this is something very interesting indeed. There would be free tracks as well as for sale ones.
What is the goal behind this? As said by National Geographic, the aim of the world music section of NG is to encourage others to be more concerned about the planet. The goal is pretty good as people would get exposed to different kinds of music. You would be able to listen to music from different places like Africa, Peru and Brazil. Find out what the music scene is like in those countries.
The nice thing about this site is that each page containing information on the artists and their music is concise and direct to the point. You could also check out the list of artists featured on the site, also the countries, albums and genres. On the sidebars are, of course, links to the other features of National Geographic which includes the schedule of programs on the National Geographic Channel, the editor’s picks and online shops.
This is a wonderful project from National Geographic. Hopefully, many people will enjoy the entire experience of being able to listen to one minute samples of the songs just to have a glimpse of what music people are into and are creating all over the world. All this is just one mouse click away from you.
