Introducing: WORLD MUSIC PICTURE ARCHIVE
The WORLD MUSIC PICTURE ARCHIVE is devoted to the visual documentation of traditional music from around the world. It contains several thousand pictures from more than 70 countries showing indiginous musicians with traditional instruments in an enormous variety of different circumstances and settings. These photographs and postcards were produced in the first half of the 20th century, and are from the extraordinary collection of music historian Christoph Wagner.
We have supplied pictures for record releases, books, newspapers, magazines, exhibitions and museums in the UK, Germany and Switzerland. These include The Rough Guide to World Music, Trikont Records, Honest Jon's Records, fRoots, Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, Jazzthetik, Stuttgarter Zeitung, Die Tageszeitung/TAZ, Die Wochenzeitung/WoZ, Kommune, German Harmonica Museum (Trossingen), Transit Verlag (Berlin). Schott Verlag a.o.
If you looking for a certain picture of a traditional musician or a music band from somewhere around the world for a publication, worth asking.
