It began with a vision : Nick Wall committed himself to collecting songs from every country in the world, creating a website where people could listen to them, and writing a book based around the songs chosen. He spent over four years gathering traditional music from countries large and small, from Kazakhstan to Kiribati, listening to what the artists had to say and researching their cultures, then weaving the music in with information, stories, and reflections about each country.
The books are aimed at anyone with a passion for exploring other cultures. Chapter by chapter, Nick tries to demonstrate that every country is special, and worthy of attention. And he learns why, in this globalised world, our roots are still a vital part of who we are.
“Best way to get to know our world is its songs. Song to song, story to story, musician to musician, Nick Wall’s interesting and infatuating project/book is taking us around the planet with all its diverse, colorful musical styles and cultures!” – Kristi Stassinopoulou.
“Nick Wall presents us with a thoroughly readable, well-researched and stimulating analysis of the sheer variety of music across the world. Every section stimulates the reader to explore the music on the website – and beyond. At the same time, we are encouraged to engage with the cultures, history and personalities of every single country. That’s no mean feat.” – Fatea Magazine
