I'm Nick Wall, creator of the popular musictodiefor blog. Five years ago I set myself the task of collecting traditionally based music from every country in the world, researching the artists and the cultures, and writing it all up in a book. I didn't quite know then what I was taking on, but it's now complete, and the book Around the World in 575 Songs : Traditional Music from all the World's Countries will be in bookstores by September, published in four volumes ! All 575 songs are streamed on my website which is now live, and you're welcome to drop in and start exploring the songs: https://aroundtheworldin575songs.com/.
At this moment (June 2018) I'm crowdfunding to build awareness of the book and to help me cover the publishing costs. Between now and June 15th all books are on special offer and the whole series is on sale at 50% off. All are invited to check out my Indiegogo crowdfunding page, watch my video and learn more about the project : https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/around-the-world-in-575-songs/x/...

"How many people are able to travel the whole world in their life time…?
How many people have the money, the time, the physical ability to do so? Best way to get to know our world is its songs. Song to song, story to story, musician to musician, Nick Wall’s interesting and infatuating project/book is taking us around the planet with all its diverse, colorful musical styles and cultures! "
Each country, and each culture, is special. This is what I've tried to show. This is a book with a message, and also a carnival of cultures.
