Global Soundtracks81, Rivington StreetLondon, EC2A 3AYUnited Kingdomwww.globalsoundtracks.comMusical multiculturalismThe Global Soundtracks styleof editorial multiculturalismfavours boundary-pushing acts.We make no apologies for this.Popular and commercial musicisn’t excluded but it mustcompete on the grounds ofmusical merit and culturalrelevance to a global audiencethat seeks adventure in themusic they listen to.This provides a unique platformfor artists who are oftenoverlooked by mainstreamglobal and local music culturesbecause they don't fit dominantaudience tastes (as decided bydominant 'taste-makers'); whilefor acts that are embraced byexisting cultures, GlobalSoundtracks offers analternative way to reach ageographically and musicallydiverse audience.'Underground' or grass rootsmusic cultures are fragmentedfrom each other, divided both bygeographical boundaries and bysocial, cultural and musicaltraditions. Global Soundtracksbrings these cultures togetherby creating a uniquely globaland integrated platform forunderground music, helpingto connect a multi-regionalcommunity of musicaladventurers.Using the power of a globalnetwork, niche acts can reach awider audience, and listenerscan hear music that they wouldhave little exposure to fromeither mainstream or specialistchannels.Sake of SkillPicture credit: Emily MulesGS020 / Grrls, Hips and SnakesBroadcast Monday 26th October 2009BenjaminPicture credit: Eric WhelanGS003 / Distortion, CopenhagenBroadcast Monday 15th June 2009Super Star DancersPicture credit: Emily MulesGS012 / Satta Outside KlaipedaBroadcast Monday 24th August 2009
