ARC Music celebrates 35 years of dedication to world music


If you are subscribed to our newsletter you will have seen that ARC Music is celebrating a birthday this month.

In November 1976, ARC Music started as one-man operation by Horst Tubbesing, selling Bolivian music out of the back of his car, a Citroen 2CV. Having come an incredibly long way since then, this month ARC Music celebrates 35 years of dedication to world music.

You can read the full story here.

To celebrate this milestone achievement, we are offering 2 fantastic giveaways.

Sampler:

Here is your chance to download a FREE 35th anniversary sampler, including 19 tracks from some of our most exciting releases over the years. There’s no catch, we just want you to enjoy the music. If you discover some new music that you love in the process, our job is done.

Fans in the US can download the sampler from Amazon at the following link:
