Naxos Music Library World launches interactive map
Streaming service Naxos Music Library World has created a new tool for music discovery: an interactive map of the world. Reportedly the first streaming service dedicated to world music, NML World now allows users to start searches with “from where do I want to hear music?” rather than “This music is from where?” Each release’s title appears in its native language with its English translation, while enlarging cover art and booklets shows full liner notes to accompany the streaming tracks. NML World is curated by a team of more than 35 musicologists to ensure classification accuracy, and the listening audience can help it continuously improve. If a work’s associated location or cultural group needs to be reconsidered, users can send feedback.
