A Farewell To Phil Stanton

Phil Stanton receiving WOMEX 13 Label Award

It’s with a heavy heart we must say farewell to our dear Phil Stanton, co-founder of the World Music Network and WOMEX 13 Label Award recipient, who passed away this past Saturday, 26th of January 2019.

Over the past 30 years, Phil's work focused on creating awareness for world music and bringing it to a wider and global audience, along with new artists, new sounds and inspirations through the Rough Guide Series and his label Riverboat Records. His contribution to music has been and will remain essential to the future generations and he will be dearly missed by whoever had the privilege to cross paths with him.

Thank you for everything, Phil.
