Feedback from previous Songlines trips

“This is an incredible tour. We had the privilege of meeting musicians in their own homes and villages – and listening to their music was an experience of a lifetime that I will never forget.”

Tiki Kyte on the Songlines trip to Rajasthan

“I really think these Songlines Music Travel trips are excellent value. You go to a part of the globe that is just so rich in musical culture and you’re guided to all the best music places by someone who has lived there, speaks the language and loves the music. You can’t get better than that.”
