What is Sounds and Colours?

Sounds and Colours is a magazine about South American music and culture. Through regular articles, news, reviews and audiovisual features we focus on the diverse cultures of the South American continent with music, film and the arts at the core of what we do.

What makes Sounds and Colours unique?

Sounds and Colours began in order to promote South American music and culture. We felt that Latin American culture was often shown through a narrow lens, missing much of the diversity that makes it such a rich culture. Our aim from day one has been to show all sides of South American culture, especially those that have been under-represented in the past.

Who is behind Sounds and Colours?

Sounds and Colours started in May 2010 by a team devoted to South America and its culture.

How can I send my music to Sounds and Colours?

We are always interested in hearing new music from South America so if you’re in a band or produce music please feel free to send us some of your music. We can’t guarantee that we will listen to it but we will try. You can send your music to info@soundsandcolours.com.

Please bear in mind that we just deal with South American music so there really isn’t any point in sending us gypsy jazz music or minimal techno!
