The Transglobal World Music Chart (TWMC) will reveal its first monthly chart in October 2015.

The TWMC is a network of international world music writers and radio DJs who specialize in various forms of world music: traditional and contemporary folk music, world beat, global fusion, global electronica and any other form of music rooted in tradition.

The new chart has a global vision, including representatives from various continents, seeking to expose the sounds of the planet based on merit and talent rather than popularity.

Starting in October, the TWMC will release a monthly chart. There will also be a “best of the year” chart at the end of each year. The TWMC is projected to include productions recorded in any country, including self-releases and small indie label recordings.
