World Music from Amazon.com
From the flamenco-inspired sounds of a Spanish guitar to the rhythmic percussion of Afro-beat, world music can transport you not only to new regions but also carries a history of the country with it. That’s why Amazon.com brings you world music from all over, whether you’re looking for digital MP3s, vinyl, CDs, or other formats.
Whether you love French chanson, Celtic music, or Brazilian bossa nova, Amazon.com can help you find your favorite world music artists and your favorite genres, from Fela Kuti and Os Mutantes to The Dubliners and Édith Piaf, or series like the Rough Guide and the Putomayo Presents collections. Our wide range of world music comes from all over, including Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean, Cuba, Europe, the Far East, Asia, India, Pakistan, the Middle East, North America, the Pacific Island, and South and Central America.
If you prefer to collect hard copies of world music, you might be interested in our program called AutoRip. AutoRip automatically makes the hard copy of AutoRip-eligible albums you’ve just purchased available on your Amazon.com Cloud Player. Now you can have the physical CDs or vinyl records for your own personal collection, and you can listen to your favorite songs wherever you can access your Cloud Player. Whether you’re ready to tune in to Jimmy Cliff, Alejandro Sanz, or Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole, you can purchase AutoRip-ready vinyl and CDs so you don’t have to wait to listen to your favorite records.
Music is music no matter the format, but in case you prefer to collect vinyl records, CDs, cassettes, or digital formats, we offer a wide selection of each format. You can even search our world music page by new releases, including brand new, 90 days old, and upcoming albums available for pre-order. We also offer a huge range of editions, so you can pick everything from main albums, singles and EPs, live albums, imports, limited editions, box sets, and compilations.
With world music from Amazon.com, you can listen to culturally inspired tunes from around the globe no matter where you are.
