About Us

Tridha Arts Association, in association with Lula Music and Arts Centre and financial assistance from FACTOR created Canadian World Music, a web-based catalogue of Canadian world musicians, with the objective of enhancing the artistic opportunities both national and international, for market-ready Canadian world music artists and groups.

The website aims to raise the international profile of Canada as a country rich in musical diversity and high calibre world music acts. We hope that the site will also facilitate a greater diversity in the bands being selected by national presenters.

The selection criteria were developed by a committee of industry advisors including representatives from Small World Music, Sunfest, Batuki Music and Lula Music and Arts Centre. Canadianworldmusic.com began as a pilot project that included only Ontario musicians. We are now accepting submissions from across Canada.
