BBC’s New World Music Archive: Where Will It Take The Next Generation Of Musicians?
A newly released global music database could provide a strong influence on the next crop of artists.
The BBC recently launched the World Music Archive. Offering over 100 hours of content, the archive brings pop music from the world’s most conflict-ridden regions to the fore, including North Korea, Iran and Cuba. While it does offer a glimpse at the wider music scene across the world, it will be interesting to see how the access to this music affects the current crop of musicians in the West.
