The June 2023 issue (#188) of Songlines is out now and it’s full to the brim with the best music happening across the world. We take a deep dive into the ‘fearless future of folk’ with Lankum, Angeline Morrison, Brìghde Chaimbeul, Jim Ghedi and so many other names you need to keep an eye on. We head to Kidal in the Malian desert to find out about Tinariwen’s fractious relationship with its hometown. We speak to Gao Hong & Kadialy Kouyate about their new collaboration, get the lowdown from mischievous Estonian duo Puuluup, and find out why Kaushiki Chakraborty is the first Indian classical artist to sell out the Barbican since Ravi Shankar. We also announce the winners of this year’s Songlines Music Awards and survey the summer for our UK Festival Guide. Our My World interview is James Acaster, who tells us how he gave up music for comedy, before reigniting his first love with a new project. We also have Kayhan Kalhor & Toumani Diabaté, Silvana Estrada, Meral Polat, Mokoomba, Béla Fleck, Ricardo Dias Gomes, a dispatch from Austin, USA, and the usual news, listings, reviews and competitions in another bumper issue.
Both physical and digital copies of the magazine also come with our accompanying Top of the World compilation which features our pick of the month’s best new music – Martin Hayes & the Common Ground Ensemble, Adriana Calcanhotto, Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, Edgar Meyer feat Rakesh Chaurasia and Son Rompe Pera are just some of those to feature – as well as bonus tracks from Puuluup, Brìghde Chaimbeul, Angeline Morrison and Joana Gomila to accompany our features.
