Four winners of this year’s Songlines Music Awards demonstrate the vibrancy and variety of music from around the world, each performing a substantial live set.

Playing the music of their heritage in new and inventive ways, these artists make it wholly their own. Mariza’s take on Portuguese Fado has become something of a Pop phenomenon and Songhoy Blues have taken their ‘desert Punk’ from Mali’s underground to the international stage. Debashish Bhattacharya plays Indian ragas on slide guitar while Sam Lee challenges the perception of Folk, reworking traditional British songs.

Launched in 2008, the Songlines Music Awards celebrate the myriad of musical talents across the world featured in Songlines magazine. Votes for the Awards came in from Songlines readers, contributors and the general public. See the full list of winners and find out more about each of the artists on the Songlines website
