R.I.P. Global Rhythm

Global Rhythm was one of the best print World Music magazines around. Each issue featured artists on the cutting edge of different musical styles from different countries and had a free CD of much of the music covered between the covers. Alas, Global Rhythm published its last issue earlier this autumn, with the intentions of going Web-only. However, those plans have changed and the site is no longer going to be updated. This is a real blow to the World Music community, but makes sites like Inside World Music all the more important. As a side note, subscribers to Global Rhythm are now being serviced by Relix, its sister publication and a fine magazine unto itself. ~ Paula E. Kirman
